A member of the Chinese medical team in Serbia told Belgrade daily Blic that the coronavirus pandemic is not hard to tackle if it is discovered on time and patients are treated immediately.

“Our experience shows that early discovery, early isolation and treatment are very important,” Doctor Xiong Yan said. She said that 80 percent of coronavirus patients display mild or medium symptoms while 20 percent develop serious or critical symptoms. Early discovery is important to prevent the 20 percent from developing serious ailments, she added.  

“If Serbia does what China did, if the situation is the same, based on our experience it could last the same length of time,” she said.
