Epidemiologist: No free PCR test for Serbia nationals coming back home Izvor: N1

Serbia's chief epidemiologist Predrag Kon denied earlier information that all Serbia’s nationals coming back from foreign countries will be tasted on coronavirus for free, N1 reported.

Earlier on Wednesday, the state RTS reported the testing would be free, while those who would travel abroad would have to pay some Euro 51 for the PCR test.

RTS TV quoted Mirjana Milenkovic from the Belgrade Public Health Institute as saying those tested negative would have to report to a local police station in charge of controlling the self-isolation measures.

She added that the testing was not compulsory for those who could opt to spend 14 days in self-isolation.

Those travelling to the countries which insist on the PCR test will have to pay some 51 Euro to be tested.

Kon confirmed Serbia's citizens would have a choice to be tested or go into 14-day self-isolation. If they provide a PCR test done abroad within the last 72 hours they won't have to be isolated.

But, he said the testing in Serbia would not be for free.

The Euro 51 price for testing was mentioned in the anti-corona Crisis Team meetings, Kon said but added the price would depend on the laboratories licenced for testing, and decided upon by relevant institutions.
