The head of the Belgrade Infectious Diseases Clinic Dr Goran Stevanovic told Blic daily that Serbia has avoided an “Italian scenario” but warned that no one should think the danger of the coronavirus pandemic is gone and that the isolation measures should be relaxed.
“We have for now which does not in any way mean that we can relax, end or ease the isolation measures or think that the danger has passed,” he said and added that the pandemic is being kept in check only thanks the efforts to implement those measures. “Any relaxation can be dangerous and exact a high price,” he said.
Stevanovic said the numbers of people infected and deaths are within the scope of what was expected. He refused to speculate about a date when things could return to normal. “The conditions to get life back to normal will be in place when the number of new cases drops significantly,” he said.
