Predrag Kon, Serbia’s chief epidemiologist and a member of the country’s Crisis Team, said on Wednesday the body’s meeting on Friday would discuss new measures during the next weekend, adding the epidemic situation had worsened.
The new measures were expected at Wednesday’s meeting, but the decision was postponed.
In the meantime, Tatjana Adzic Vukicevic, the head of Batajnica, the largest COVID hospital in Belgrade, warned that Serbia could face up to 8,000 newly infected daily and 10,000 hospitalised as it was the case in December, advocating the closure of „everything that can be closed.“
She blamed the winter holidays for the increase in the number of COVID-19 patients.
Kon also said, „the increase in the number of sick people can be expected in the next ten days,“ adding that the immunisation must increase,“ as well.
He added the epidemic situation was worsening and that „the control must be stronger.“
Serbia’s inspections and police had recently discovered several indoor parties with hundreds of people gathered violating the anti-epidemic measures, while the ski resorts were crowded in mid-February.
