Serbian Health Ministry State Secretary Mirsad Djerlek said on Tuesday that Belgrade’s COVID system hospitals are full to capacity.

He told the Serbian state TV (RTS) that 280 patients had been admitted on Monday alone, adding that 5,130 patients were examined by doctors at primary health care COVID facilities. Dr Djerlek said the authorities were considering expanding COVID facilities to more hospitals.

“The Zvezdara hospital (in Belgrade) is up to 50 percent in the COVID system but I think we will be forced to expand to all of its capacities and I’m not sure that will be enough,” he said.
