The Serbian government warned that any information about the coronavirus pandemic not coming from its Crisis Staff should not be considered trusthworthy.

The government decided on March 28 to forbid anyone not in its Crisis Staff from issuing any information about the coronavirus pandemic. “All information for the public will come from the Prime Minister or persons empowered by the Crisis Staff,” the government said in its decision which was published in the Official Gazette on Tuesday. All government decisions take effect once published in the Gazette. The Crisis Staff is headed by Prime Minister Ana Brnabic.  

The government warned that any information about health care measures and any other information from “unauthorized persons” cannot be considered “correct and verified”, adding that anyone passing along that information could be held accountable under “regulations covering accountability and legal consequences for spreading disinformation during the state of emergency”.  

The government also ordered all mayors, municipality chiefs, local crisis staff, health care institutions and medical staff to send any information about the coronavirus pandemic only to the government Crisis Staff.
