Expert Says No Coronavirus Hotbeds in Serbia

"At the time there are not intense hotbeds of the coronavirus" in Serbia, Darija Kisic Tepavcevic, deputy director of the Serbian Dr Milan Jovanovic Batut Institute for Public Health, said on Oct. 8.

She told Serbian state TV that sporadic cases and "absolutely low numbers" were being registered in some cities. Although the bulk of infections (54 percent) are in Belgrade, the situation in the capital is not alarming, she said, adding that "it is logical" that the city with the most inhabitants has the highest number of coronavirus infections.

She went on to say that the epidemiological situation in schools was favorable and that six weeks after school started in Serbia there had been 80 cases of students being infected with the virus of which 28 were high school students.

She said that these too were "sporadic cases," referring to infections that occurred outside of school and added that the epidemic was not spreading in schools with the exception of two cases in Kragujevac and one in Belgrade.
