Serbia’s anti-epidemic Crisis Team, made up of both doctors and politicians, decided on Tuesday to tighten the existing measures against the coronavirus epidemic, including ordering shorter working hours of cafes, restaurants and service facilities from Friday.
The measures first need to be adopted by the Government which is meeting on Thursday. If the government does give a green light, the measures will be in force from the next day.
Prime Minister Ana Brnabic says she will talk to President Aleksandar Vucic about their compliance with the Constitution.
