Under the protocols announced by health authorities, those using public transport must wear protective masks and practice social distancing, and buses can only use up to 70% of their capacity.
Albania’s public transport, suspended nationwide since March, is one of the hardest-hit sectors by the COVID-19 pandemic, Xinhua said.
As of yesterday (Tuesday, June 9) evening, Albania has reported 1,299 infected people, with 34 people dead, according to the latest figures from Johns Hopkins University. At least 945 have recovered.
