North Macedonia Is Tightening Pandemic Restrictions Until April 20

SKOPJE, North Macedonia — North Macedonia is tightening pandemic restrictions until April 20, as its hospitals fill up following a record high of new COVID-19 infections and deaths last week.

Prime Minister Zoran Zaev says the nationwide curfew will be extended for two hours — from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. — from Tuesday. All bars, restaurants, fitness centers and betting clubs will be closed from Wednesday.

“Stay at home! Do not go out and avoid grouping!,” Zaev urged Monday.

Authorities recorded 50 deaths and 1,320 new confirmed infections Saturday. The country of just over 2 million has reported nearly 135,000 infections in total and about 4,000 deaths. North Macedonia has delayed mass immunization amid vaccine shortages.

Health Minister Venko Filipce said hospitals “are overloaded as never before.”
