Albania’s Prime Minister Edi Rama said on Monday that the families of his country’s nationals returning home from abroad would have to pay for a two week quarantine during the coronavirus pandemic.

He said that Albanian nationals would be allowed into the country only if they have a serious reason to return home, adding that the borders were closed to protect the population. He said that 19 vehicles were stranded at a border crossing with Greece.

The Albanian authorities have reported 377 confirmed coronavirus cases and 21 deaths. Experts believe that those low numbers are the result of strict measures limiting the movement of the population. The Albanian government has closed all schools, restaurants, shops, gyms and similar and imposed a ban on all gatherings. Only one member of each family is allowed out of the home to shop at certain times.
