No one died from consequences of coronavirus infection in Serbia in the last 24 hours, according to the Sept. 14 data of the Ministry of Health and Institute of Public Health Dr Milan Jovanovic Batut, reported by the media.
In that period 5,930 people were tested, of whom 29 tested positive for the virus, which is the lowest number of newly infected since June 2, when there were 24. Today there are 28 patients on ventilators in hospitals nationwide.
A member of the Serbian government's Crisis Headquarters, Branislav Tiodorovic, said that a decision to introduce mandatory supervision for citizens who enter Serbia as of 6 p.m. on Sept. 18 had been made due to the "great fire," which was the phrase he used to describe the epidemiological situation in Montenegro, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Tiodorovic told the portal Nova (nova.rs) that citizens coming from countries with an increased number of coronavirus cases would be handed a notice obliging them to report, within 24 hours, to the COVID-19 section of the health center where they had a medical record.
