North Macedonia fined over 1,000 people for not wearing a mask within 24 hoursNorth Macedonia recorded its highest number of coronavirus deaths in more than a month, authorities warned that citizens ignored warnings to wear masks and observe social distancing.

Some 125 new infections and seven deaths in the past 24 hours have been recorded overnight, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the country to approximately 2.1 million people at 3,364, including 164 deaths.

Health officials said the new peak was linked to mass gatherings three weeks ago during religious holidays, particularly in the capital of Skopje and three other regions.

The government says new travel restrictions are not necessary, but has ordered the police to strictly enforce the remaining controls and to impose fines if necessary. Police fined 1,143 people in 24 hours who were found without a protective mask on Wednesday.
