A number of modern and high-quality medical devices were delivered to the University Hospital Centre “Mother Theresa” to help the country fight the COVID-19 pandemic. The agreement and delivery was made in the presence of the Albanian deputy minister of health Mira Rakacolli and the Acting Charge d’Affaires of the Embassy of the State of Qatar, Nada Abdulrahman Al Sayed.
