The curfew in Serbia will be extended from 5 p.m. on Friday to 5 a.m. on Monday morning; this was confirmed yesterday during the regular conference by the government’s crisis unit. The period in which pensioners can go shopping has been moved to Friday, from 4 to 7 a.m.
Previously, there was the idea of introducing a curfew only in Belgrade and Nis, which are the major hotbeds of the coronavirus infection, but it was subsequently decided that the ban will be implemented in the whole country.

The curfew was already in force last weekend from 1 p.m. on Saturday to 5 a.m. on Monday. This did not apply to people over 65 who were able to shop on Saturday morning.
Pet owners were also exempt from the curfew and could take their pets out on Saturday evenings from 11 pm to 1 pm and on Sundays from 8 am to 10 am.
In Serbia, a further 219 new cases of coronavirus and four deaths were recorded in the last 24 hours. So far, there have been a total of 2,666 infected and 65 dead.
