Albania deploys army to enforce curfew


Albania deployed the army for a planned 40 hours to enforce a curfew that the country initiated on March 21 to control the spread of COVID-19 after citizens continued to openly ignore the orders to stay at home. Although the country had only 76 confirmed cases at the time, it was concerned about the potential spread from 120,000 people who had returned from Italy before March 9, when the country cut travel links.
