Workers from five textile companies and their relatives or friends are part of the newly infected people with COVID-9 in Shtip in the last few days. Yesterday there were 14 new confirmed cases and today the number is close to ten, even though the results from the tests from two other laboratories aren’t yet complete, confirmed the Center for Public Health in Shtip.

All companies apart from one are working regularly. The sick are treated while their contacts are put into self-isolation, but the production in the factories continues regularly.

Starting from today, around a hundred workers from a textile company where two cases of COVID-19 were confirmed and around ten had symptoms, were sent on a one-week vacation. The owner has announced that all workers will be tested and afterward they will continue with their work.
