The European Union delivered the fifth part of the aid for the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in Kosovo today. The total value of this donation is almost 900,000 euros, and it is part of the EU assistance of 5 million euros.
Acting Head of the EU Office in Kosovo and EU Special Representative, Ricardo Seri, handed over 30 ventilators used in intensive care units, 200 pulse oximeters and 20 electrocardiographic devices to the Minister of Health of Kosovo, Armend Zemaj.
"I believe that ventilators for intensive care units in particular can make a big difference and alleviate the problems of treatment for those most severely affected by Covid-19 infection," said Seri, adding that each of us must be responsible:
"And to abide by rules, such as keeping a physical distance, wearing masks, washing hands, avoiding gatherings, as we do today, during this event."
