Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Thursday that the government was set to close student dorms in Belgrade and limit the working hours of all clubs, floating restaurants and cafes for a two-week period.

Speaking live on the Serbian state TV (RTS), Vucic said that clubs, restaurants and cafes would be closed between 11:00 pm and 6:00 am. He added that a ban would be imposed on indoor public gatherings of more than 100 people and outdoor gatherings of more than 500 people.

He said that fines would be introduced for failure to wear face masks in public transport and shopping malls.

Vucic said that the Belgrade is the biggest problem at present because 82.5 percent of the new coronavirus cases are in the Serbian capital. He said the measures would be imposed as of Friday, adding that he would have locked down Belgrade and imposed a seven-day curfew if he could have decided on his own without consulting the pandemic Crisis Staff.

Earlier, the Serbian government said that it would ban all gatherings of more than five people in local communities and would ban all celebrations and sports and entertainment events, including the use of polls and spas and would limit the opening hours of cafes and restaurants but would not close beauty salons and fitness centers.
