As the country progresses at good vaccination rates the rates of COVID-19 infections have dropped significantly.
For the epidemiologist, Ilir Alimehmeti, the situation is clearly more positive, referring to the figures. Alimehmeti says the positivity rate is below 10%.
"In these percentages, the positivity of the tests is less than 10%. This only happened at the beginning of the pandemic. The situation is clearly better.
"We can not count on European countries for vaccination, no country has achieved significant vaccination rates except the United Kingdom, which already has a much better situation and the effect is much better," said Alimehmeti.
While emphasizing the fact that Tirana is closer to the immunity of the herd, talking about vaccines, the well-known doctor has a piece of advice for young people.
"We have a lot of data that speaks of a pretty strong natural immunity. Cases of reinfection are not serious and in Albania for example there is no loss of life from reinfection. The discussion regarding age groups I would be that if young people have not passed it should be vaccinated.
I would advise the people who have passed by now for a second moment ", said among others in the interview for Report Tv, the epidemiologist, Ilir Alimehmeti.
