Pressure on COVID hospitals in Serbia eases

The number of people infected with the coronavirus is decreasing, the pressure on hospital capacities is decreasing and, as a result, some hospitals are expected to start accepting patients with other health problems.

The number of patients in the Zemun Clinical Centre is 40% lower than a month ago.

At the moment, 5,318 infected patients are being treated at the hospitals, whereas at the end of March, there were more than 7,000. The director in the Zemun Clinical Centre, Dragoš Stojanović, told that there are more and more free beds. However, the return of hospitals to the regular medical regime is uncertain and unpredictable. Everything will depend on the epidemiological situation.

The decrease in the number of Covid patients at the Zemun hospital by 40% compared to a month ago is a good sign. “It looks encouraging,” Stojanovic said.

The number of patients being treated at the Dr Dragisa Misovic hospital is also decreasing. The Minister of Health, Zlatibor Lončar, announced that Block A of the facility should return to regular operation.

The COVID hospital in Batajnica has been opened as a special hospital. When the pandemic passes, it will also accept patients with other diagnoses. In the meantime, patients with the most severe forms of the coronavirus are treated there.

At the hospital, which can accommodate 900 patients, they warned a month and a half ago that an empty bed would fill up immediately. Now, the situation is better, only 70% of the hospital capacity is full and the number of incoming patients is also decreasing.
