Speaking at a regular press briefing of the COVID-19 Crisis Response Team, Kisic Tepavcevic said that the measures passed last month in order to curb the spread of coronavirus have yielded results.
Speaking about the age of patients who are on ventilatory support, she said that in recent weeks that age group has been moving towards older patients.
At this moment, most patients that died are the older ones, and in social care centres there are some new cases of coronavirus among the residents and staffers, but that number is somewhat lower than in the first wave.
Kisic Tepavcevic said that currently 3,340 patients are hospitalised, of whom 11 are children.
She pointed out that the largest number of those infected are still in Belgrade and Novi Sad, whereas Subotica records a mild increase in relation to previous days.
The epidemiological situation clearly shows the tendency of decrease of the number of new cases in the entire country, with many cities and municipalities not reporting new cases at all. The pressure on health centres has also decreased, 280 persons were hospitalised over the past 24 hours and 483 were discharged, Kisic Tepavcevic said.
