Environment Ministry State Secretary Branislav Blazic is the only person in the government who tested positive for the coronavirus, N1 was told by sources in the government.
Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic confirmed for the pro-government TV Happy that Blazic tested positive but added that there are several others who have tested positive without specifying how many.
Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said that everyone who had come into contact with Blazic had been tested for the coronavirus. She told TV Prva that the same rules apply for government officials and staff as for everyone else in Serbia.
The sources said that everyone who had contact with Blazic whether at the Council for Human Rights in Geneva or in the ministry and meetings he attended are in isolation, including a State Secretary in the Foreign Ministry.
N1 was told that rigorous measures are being enforced with everyone being tested for the coronavirus.
