Emergency epidemic situation will be announced if the government makes such a decision
The amendments aim at defining the measures that our country should abide in order to stop the spread of COVID-19. The state of emergency ends on May 13 and will not continue from this date on.
Emergency epidemic situation will be announced for a concrete period of time and if the Health Minister suggests that. At first the idea was that the Health Minister should be enabled to announce emergency epidemic situation. Anyway, the opposition party insisted that the whole government should take responsibility for such a decision.
The MPs adopted also 8 criteria that have to be at hand in order to announce emergency epidemic situation for the whole country or a region.
Anyone infected with COVID-19 will be isolated. Anyone who he/her had contacts with will also stay under quarantine.
