Doctor warns that entire Serbian city could be quarantined Izvor: N1

The doctor who laughingly told the Serbian public that the coronavirus was a “ridiculous virus” just two weeks ago on Wednesday warned that the city of Valjevo could be quarantined.

Pulmologist Branimir Nestorovic told the pro-government TV Pink that Valjevo could be isolated because of an irresponsible group of 20 people who were infected and refused to stay at home.

Valjevo ranks third after Belgrade and Nis with 38 coronavirus patients and another 400 in self-isolation even though it is small with no airport or major international roads. The local population believe that the first infection was at a company celebration which was attended by a businessman from Austria on February 29. An N1 local correspondent said that local priests tested positive after entertaining guests from Italy. There is also concern over the fact that five doctors tested positive while others are in self-isolation.

“I understand that it’s hard for people to stay at home but they have to endure for a few weeks. This is the most dangerous time, we are ending the third and coming into the fourth week. We are starting a hard week for medical staff and that will be proved by the higher number of patients,” he said.
