All migrants, who were on Serbia's territory at the moment when the authorities declared the state of emergency over the coronavirus pandemic, have been put into the centres secured by the Army of Serbia, the Commissariat for Refugees and Migrations said on Saturday.

Some 8,700 migrants are currently accommodated in the migrant camps across Serbia, according to the Commissariat, and they were practically placed into a full quarantine due to the coronavirus outbreak. The entry is not allowed either.

The Commissariat said it was necessary to clarify this information after the allegations that migrants are being brought to Serbia overnight and that they are settling down in the country.

The videos that appeared on social networks, showing the migrants being accommodated in the centres, are old recordings, said the Commissariat.
