EU to take Serbia off ‘the red list’?

If the number of people infected with the coronavirus continues to decrease, the EU may recommend its members to remove Serbia from the so-called red list, writes Blic daily.

The document, however, states that this would not mean that all EU countries would automatically implement the decision, especially those which are still in the grip of the contagion.

Removing Serbia from the red list will probably not happen before September 1, but it is possible that, for example, Greek will decide to allow Serbian tourists to enter the country with a negative PCR test.

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) published yesterday the most recent data for all countries, on the basis of which it will be decided which country will be put on the so-called green, yellow and red list.

On the basis of these data, Serbia has been deemed as a “country at risk” by the European Union, but Blic says that the situation could change for better soon.

According to the ECDC data, Serbia has registered 2,323 newly infected people in the last two weeks, which means an average of 33.2 corona-positive people per 100,000.

The country is therefore on track to drop below the 25/100,000 ratio, which almost all countries consider relevant for the removal from the red list.

Spain currently ranks first in Europe in terms of the number of newly infected people which stands at 175.7 per 100,000 inhabitants. As far as the region is concerned, Montenegro is in the lead with 111.9, Bosnia and Herzegovina with 108.8, Romania with 86.4 cases per 100,000, North Macedonia 82.2, finally Croatia with 65.3 cases per 100,000 citizens.
