“The number of people infected with the coronavirus in the last 24 hours stands at 379 and is the lowest in the last two weeks,” said the Deputy Director of the Batut Institute and a member of the government Crisis Unit, Darija Kisić Tepavčević, who once again appealed to everyone to be more responsible and fully respect the preventive measures.
“It is the lowest number in the last two weeks, but the numbers are still high. If we adhere to the measures we will record a decline in the epidemic curve, so now we have to be even more responsible and do our best to extinguish the epidemic,” said Kisić Tepavčević.

In the last 24 hours, 379 new cases of COVID-19 were recorded, out of 9,817 tested. Also, another 8 people died, which brings the total death toll to 551.
4,531 people were admitted to hospital and 156 of them are on ventilators.
Nine children infected with the virus are being treated at the Dragiša Mišović Clinic in Belgrade, while six pregnant women at the maternity unit were tested positive for corona.
“All the children who have been infected with the coronavirus and are undergoing hospital treatment are in a stable condition and their health situation is not worrisome,” Kisić underlined.
So far, 52.84% of those infected with the virus are men and 47.15% are women.
The highest number of sick people by age group is in the 30 to 49 range, a total of about 40%, while 60% of the sick people are 50 years old and older.
Kisić said that younger people are getting increasingly infected which directly reflects their increased exposure to the virus, but also looser adherence to the measures.
She also said that children up to the age of 9 years make 2% of the coronavirus patients, 10 to 19 years old 3.2%, 20 to 29 years old 13.8%, 30 to 39 years old 19.8%, and 40 to 49 years old 19.85%.
Of the total number of patients, people aged between 50 and 59 make 17.3%, 60-69 years old 13.6%, 70-79 years old 7.1%, 80-89 years old 2.9%, and those older than 90 make 0.3% of the people infected with the coronavirus.
