If the immunisation continues at the same pace and if the people are disciplined, Serbia could put the coronavirus under control, and the summer holiday would be a realistic option, the country’s Health Minister Zlatibor Loncar has said on Tuesday.

However, he warned the anti-epidemic measures were not respected enough according to the number of daily infected and added there should not be relaxation.

“Let’s be responsible, people who all countries would gladly accept,” Loncar said, referring to travels during the next summer.

He announced that the anti-epidemic Crisis Team would analyse the health situation and decide on the next steps. Still, he added that the daily number of newly infected with the coronavirus showed the protective measures were not respected fully.

Earlier, the country’s Ministry of Employment, Veteran and Social Policy, dr Darija Kisic Tepavcevic, also warned that caution was still needed despite Serbia’s success in building collective immunity.
