Speaking at a regular coronavirus press briefing, Kon said that for that reason, the epidemiological situation still cannot be characterised differently than unfavourable and insecure, however it is no longer an emergency situation.
He voiced the hope that if we respect the measures the numbers will continue to fall.
Provincial Health Secretary Zoran Gojkovic underlined that everything that has been agreed with the company Pfizer regarding the vaccine has been fulfilled until now and the company promised it would remain so in the future.
He explained that Serbia cooperated and bought vaccines from other manufacturers too as we cannot tie ourselves to one producer only and thus come into a situation that we depend on the will or strength of someone who is more powerful than us at that moment.
According to him, a lot of effort has been invested not to allow omissions in the vaccination procedure as in some other countries, where the scheduling system was collapsing and the application of the vaccine was inadequate.
Gojkovic said that the Pfizer vaccine got a permanent licence in Serbia, while Russian “Sputnik V” has a temporary licence and the procedure for obtaining the permanent one is underway.
The same procedure will be applied for the Chinese vaccine – it will first receive a temporary licence, and then a permanent too.
He added that the epidemiological situation in Vojvodina is the same as in other parts of Serbia.
The number of new cases is the biggest in Novi Sad, as Vojvodina’s largest city, while in other places the situation is under control, the Provincial Secretary said and added that the situation in Vojvodina hospitals is better than in the previous days and that some of them are going back from the covid regime to the regular work regime.
