Ministry of Health state secretary Mirsad Djerlek said on July 6 that a fourth wave of the coronavirus epidemic may happen in Serbia even before the coming fall.
Djerlek believes that Serbian citizens have "relaxed too much" and that the majority thinks that the coronavirus is a thing of the past, while it is still here.
"Vaccination has slowed down, by July 5 we administered 2,730,000 first doses of the vaccine and 2,590,000 second doses, and that is not yet enough for us to relax, because with that number of vaccinated [citizens] we cannot expect a peaceful autumn," he told Pink TV.
Immunologist Srdja Jankovic said on July 6 that as many citizens as possible needed to be inoculated. "The situation is relatively good but we have about a hundred [newly] infected every day and a big portion of the population is not immune to this disease, which is a risk that will inevitably lead to a worsening of the epidemiological situation," he pointed out.
