Deputy Director of the Batut Institute Darija Kisic-Tepavcevic said on Aug. 12 that there are currently almost 9,000 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Serbia, but that four-fifths of them are in home isolation, i.e. have a milder form of the disease.
Kisic-Tepavcevic told the RTS public service that the latest results show that the epidemiological situation in the country is more favorable and that the pressure on the health system has diminished.
“However, there is a significant number of confirmed cases, which means that we must not relax,” she pointed out.
She added that in addition to the stabilization of the situation in the country as a whole, the number of infected in Belgrade and Novi Sad is also dropping.
Speaking about the country’s approach to fighting the virus, Kisic Tepavcevic also said that the method of focusing on individual hotspots was not the best, as Serbia is a small country, with a “high fluctuation” of people.
