Speaking at a press conference of the COVID-19 Crisis Response Team, Asanin said that there were 300 check-ups in all COVID centres in Belgrade, which is less than before and added that one-third of patients still require hospital admission.
Director of the KCS Centre for Anaesthesia and Resuscitation Nebojsa Ladjevic pointed out that despite a drop in the number of check-ups in COVID centres and hospitals, there is still a large number of patients at intensive care units.
Director of the Serbian Public Health Institute “Dr Milan Jovanovic Batut” Verica Jovanovic underlined that coronavirus does not spare any population group and that no one is safe and explained that it primarily attacks respiratory organs, but it also affects all other systems of the human body.
She added that she is satisfied with the application of preventive measures in old people’s homes and that the numbers show that this part of the population has taken the need for the use of protective measures seriously.
Jovanovic also said that the Crisis Response Team continuously evaluates the question of introducing quarantine or obligatory negative PCR test for foreign nationals entering Serbia, as well as for Serbian nationals returning from abroad.
She specified that the recommendation of the World Health Organization is that every country decides independently on the conditions for entry to its territory during the pandemic.
The Director of the Serbian Public Health Institute said that right now there are no requirements for entry into Serbia, but that the situation is being closely monitored.
