These are members of the Army, engaged in Debar, Centar Zupa and Kumanovo, in the crisis areas on the northern and southern borders and in securing facilities intended for quarantine accommodation.
In the conversation with President Pendarovski, the members of the Army shared some of their experiences, informing him on the excellent cooperation with the local population during their engagement in the past two months. The interlocutors expressed satisfaction that none of the members of the Army became infected with COVID-19 during the execution of their duties in the crisis areas.
President Pendarovski thanked all members of the Army for their efforts in dealing with the pandemic of COVID-19 and the support they provide to the institutions, especially to the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Interior and local self-government units.
