The Serbian government decided yesterday to impose a curfew that will force citizens to stay in their homes for a total of 84 hours, from Friday 17th (17h) to Tuesday 21st (5h).
Not an easy decision, given that on Sunday, April 19, is Easter Day and that the Holy Synod of the Serbian Orthodox Church had requested for the curfew to be lifted on the day of the biggest Christian holiday.

The authorities have refused the Synod’s request refused because the position of epidemiologists and doctors remained unchanged, i.e. the curfew should not be lifted.
Prime Minister Ana Brnabic formed yesterday a new crisis team in the administrative districts of Nis and Toplica, at the suggestion of the crisis staff for COVID-19, aimed at combating the spread of the virus.
Minister of Agriculture Branislav Nedimovic was appointed head of this crisis team which also includes epidemiologist Darija Kisic Tepavcevic, Professor Branislav Tiodorovic, infectologist Milos Korac, as well as members of the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Defence, BIA and district heads.
