A state secretary at the Ministry of Health, Mirsad Djerlek, said on Sept. 7 that the Covid pass was "on the table," and that a final decision was around the corner.

"In other words, the best model as to what the Covid pass should involve is sought. It is yet to be decided if it should cover only the three much-discussed targets - night clubs, bars and coffee shops - or others should be included as well. The point is to choose what will keep a lid on the coronavirus," Djerlek said in an interview with the Serbian Broadcasting Corporation (RTS).

The healthcare official said that scheduling a session of the Covid-19 Crisis Headquarters was not within his purview, but that everything that's going on in the rest of Europe was closely monitored in terms of venues it should be required for. Djerlek promises that only "a quality choice" will be made, in accordance with the Constitution of Serbia.

Djerlek says that local research shows that 80 percent of hospitalized people and 95 percent of patients using ventilators were not vaccinated. As he put it, "there is some progress in the number of new doses administered, but it's very far from the target and from collective immunity Serbia would like to achieve."
