In the last 24 hours, 20 people have died of COVID-19 in Serbia, while 3,042 new cases were registered, the Ministry of Health said in a press release on March 7.

There are currently 4,199 patients hospitalized with COVID-19, 17, which is more than on March 6. A total of 171 of them are on ventilators. Since the outbreak of the epidemic in Serbia, 485,439 people have contracted the disease, while 4,562 have died.

Epidemiologist Branislav Tiodorovic said on March 7 that the right moment to adopt the "toughest" possible measures to curb the spread of infection with the novel coronavirus was missed.

He said that the medical experts in the Crisis Headquarters would request the "toughest" possible measures at a session on March 9. He also said the main reason for a decline in epidemiological indicators was a lack of oversight and the supervision of measures, as this contributed to the emergence of new hot spots in Serbia.
