Kosovo during pandemic COVID-19
Generally, the situation of the pandemic COVID-19 in Kosovo was associated with increased levels of fear and anxiety at the individual and societal level. Part of the feeling this way derived by poor information health professionals had on the new virus. Another part of it came by the requirements to be respected by the citizens, which seemed to be very restrictive, which fact, in turn, raised questions of their legitimacy imposing by the government. Last, but not least, the diminished, minimal public trust over the years on the healthcare system, and the lack of needed supplies to face the pandemic raised also doubts of efficiency, and efficacy of the institutions to respond promptly to the emergency.
Until recently, the spotlight has been on the pandemic – are we going to get infected; will the healthcare system be able to respond to these challenges; how to prevent the spreading of the virus? However, the epidemiological situation has been steadily improving in many countries, including the Western Balkans (WB): the total number of new cases is decreasing day by day, as well as the number of deaths.
