In the PREVIOUS 24 hours, 16,864 citizens were tested for the corona virus, of which 3,219 were newly infected.
55 patients died, and there are 259 people on respirators in hospitals throughout Serbia.
Epidemiologist Predrag Kon stated today that the epidemiological situation in Serbia is somewhat more favorable compared to a few weeks ago when it was catastrophic, which means that the measures, the extension of the autumn vacation and the introduction of covid passes, have yielded results.
Kon stated that in Belgrade’s primary schools, the infection rate has decreased five times, and in secondary schools 10 times.
– This week, the school team was re-formed, next week we will see what the consequences are. On the other hand, the measure of covid passes of 20 hours remained, however, we, as the medical part of the Crisis Staff, still ask that they be valid for 24 hours, because that is the only thing that can give results at this moment – said Kon.
I do not believe that the numbers will fall to such an extent that relaxation will be possible
The Deputy Director of the University Clinical Center in Nis, Professor Radmilo Janković, says that there is an impression of slight relief, but that there is far from any reason for optimism.
– I think it is realistic to expect that we will have such a situation during this winter as well. I do not believe that the numbers will fall to the extent that relaxation will be possible, on the contrary, I think that maybe some calmer period that may follow us, it is realistic to expect the next two to three weeks, should be used for a better strategy – says Jankovic.
