Serbian Education Minister Branko Ruzic said on Wednesday that he does not think schools should be closed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking live on TV Prva, Ruzic said that the epidemological situation is not serious enough to warrant the closure of schools but added that the government pandemic Crisis Staff will decide if need be.

The minister said the number of people infected in the education system is growing but not at an alarming rate. “The education system is not the place for a wide transmission of the virus and we owe a great debt of gratitude to teachers, pupils and students,” he said.
