In the last 24 hours, 50 people have died of COVID-19 in Serbia, and the death toll of the epidemic now stands at 8,430, it was announced on Oct. 4.

According to the records of the Serbian Institute of Public Health, 5,983 new cases of infection were confirmed among 19,452 persons tested in the 24-hour window. There are 6,511 patients currently hospitalized with COVID-19, 256 of whom are on ventilators. Since the outbreak of the epidemic in Serbia, 5,727,277 people have been tested and 966,989 have been found to be positive for the coronavirus that causes the disease.

The strategy out of the situation where the daily new case count is in the multiple thousands is "very clear," the epidemiologist Branislav Tiodorovic said on Oct. 4, explaining that it was to vaccinate 20 to 25 percent of the unvaccinated in ten to 15 days, otherwise new measures would be proposed.

He added that, in addition to more vaccination, stabilizing the situation would "require rigorous implementation and oversight of existing measures -- measures that have been in force all along."
