Serbian Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin stated on April 29 that "nobody in Serbia has been charged a penny for being treated for the corona virus," assessing that "not even the richest country in the world has that."
"No one was charged for chloroquine here. Whoever came to either a temporary hospital or any medical institution, they were not asked about whether they were insured. Do you have symptoms? If you do, you are being treated just like the richest man on earth," Vulin said in the Serbian Parliament, as quoted by the Defense Ministry.
Commenting on international aid that Serbia received to fight the epidemic, the minister thanked China, Russia, Turkey and the EU, "in the order in which the aid arrived."
"I am very grateful to the EU for now allowing us to buy their medical products. I assume they now have enough of it, they needed it and now they remembered us, but I must admit that it was very important for me when the Chinese and Russian aid arrived, when the situation was the most difficult," Vulin added.
