Epidemiologist Predrag Kon said on Monday that it’s too early to ease the measures introduced to combat the coronavirus pandemic despite the fact that the number of new cases is dropping.

He told the pro-authorities TV Pink that the numbers are still high. “The number of people being tested for the first time has dropped to a third of what it was but especially for Belgrade and that gradual drop shows that the situation is still uncertain,” the doctor, who is a member of the government pandemic Crisis Staff, said.  

The number of new cases has to drop to single digits before the measures can be eased. “Before you get to a situation with zero cases for 28 days you can’t say you’re out of the first wave (of the pandemic). New Zealand has managed to do that after not having a new case in 100 days and if new cases appear there, that will be the second wave,” Kon said.
