Health Activists monitor COVID-19 situation in Roma settlements

The development of the COVID-19 illness is being monitored in Roma settlements by the Healthy Regions organisation, which operates under the auspices of the Health Ministry. The organisation has built an extensive network of assistants in the field, who raise awareness among people returning to the settlements from abroad and monitor their potential symptoms. "The current information we have from the field, particularly on high numbers of people coming in from England, serve as evidence that the situation cannot be underestimated," added Healthy Regions director Tatiana Hrustič.
