According to him, the reality is that the Delta variant of the virus has entered Albania.
Shehu, a former health minister, said: "So far we are at the 'top of the world' for Covid losses of lives, health and economy, with about 16,000 deaths. We can only pray that we will not be even worse tomorrow because vaccination or other preventive measures are vainless! " /argumentum.al
