The resignations of Health Minister Venko Filipce and his deputy Ilir Hasani have been submitted to the prime minister and have been archived. The content of the resignations does not deviate from what the two have already publicly shared, government spokesman Dusko Arsovski said at today’s press conference.

The Prime Minister, said Arsovski, has already explained that the assessment and the decision regarding the submitted resignations will be based exclusively on the facts of the investigation, in accordance with the established reasons for the outbreak of the fire in the modular hospital in Tetovo.

– The expectations are that it will happen in the next period. The prime minister also called for a swift and thorough investigation, Arsovski said.

German experts, said Arsovski, are expected to arrive these days and will be part of the further investigation.

– Investigative bodies are independent of the executive. We, as the Government, are expecting those data and we appeal for a faster investigation and clearing up of the case, said Arsovski, answering a journalist question, how far is the field investigation.

Asked why the construction of three modular hospitals in Skopje was stopped, Arsovski said he had no such information and would have to check it.

– What is important is that these hospitals are safe and that they increase the capacity of the infectious departments. They were and still are a great support for the health system in such a crisis. This support system is applied all over the world in conditions of a pandemic, said Arsovski.

Patients, he pointed out, are currently hospitalized in the modular departments in hospitals in Gevgelija, Kicevo, Stip, Kumanovo, Struga, Gostivar, Prilep, Ohrid, Veles, Kavadarci, Strumica and the Clinic in Skopje. (MIA)
