A member of the government's Covid-19 Crisis Headquarters, Dr Branislav Tiodorovic, says that "the toughest restrictions" should be considered if the number of new coronavirus cases has reached 1,500 in a day.

The epidemiologist said in an Oct. 26 interview with the Blic daily that based on the most recent updates on Covid-19 cases in Serbia, "it's still too early to impose a night-time curfew." "Serbia's coronavirus numbers are still way bellow compared to those in the neighborhood and Europe, and it is in the small group of states with the lowest infection rate per 100,000, including Estonia, Norway and Turkey. The risk of infection is much higher elsewhere," Dr Tiodorovic said.

Serbia's leading epidemiologist said that the number of new infections was likely to surge in the next 10 to 15 days. "Unless we put under control the ongoing arrogant behaviors - parties, night events and music spectacles - we can expect the coronavirus numbers to surge," Dr Tiodorovic has warned in the interview.
