Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said that she had scheduled a meeting of the Crisis Headquarters for fighting COVID-19 for May 19, to discuss whether anything needed to be done about the rise in the number of cases in Vranje.
Touring the Science and Technology Park Belgrade, Brnabic said that despite the increase in the number of infection cases in Vranje "the situation is still under control." "We are not planning any new measures right now, but I have to point out once again that the crisis is not over. We have come out of the worst time and we can live more or less normally, but we still have to wear masks and be mindful of distance," said the prime minister.
