An epidemic

“The virus is spreading rapidly, the corona is raising the alarm again,” Novosti reports. “Possible bans on public gatherings in Belgrade, Kragujevac and Vranje. In Novi Pazar, more people are infected now than at the height of the epidemic. ” The list also quotes the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić: “If we do not get serious, the introduction of measures is not excluded.”

“WHO: In Europe, the crown is spreading 6 because of the easing of measures,” Politika reports. “The WHO predicts that the situation will calm down during the summer, but it should be prepared for the fall when, at the same time as Kovid 19, the seasonal flu will be circulating.” The paper adds that “In Novi Pazar, the number of people suffering from kovid has tripled.”

The Serbian Telegraph quotes Dr. Predrag Kon, an epidemiologist who “warns that the virus is returning. We don’t know anything about the crown, I would close everything! ”

Blic reports that “8,495 people were tested in Serbia yesterday, 193 positive”. Under the heading “Crown Dossier”, the paper quotes an Italian expert, “The virus was first an aggressive tiger and is now a wild cat” as well as the Minister of Health Loncar, “Possible restriction of the work of cafes and nightclubs”. The paper states “where are the oases without a crown in Serbia” and that there will be “travel from Serbia to the EU from July 1?”

“The virus has spread again, Vučić has told the citizens to be more responsible,” Danas reports under the title “The Great Post-Election Return of the Crown”. The paper quotes Dr. Predrag Kona: “At this moment, it is not possible to test contacts because there are not enough tests, and one patient reports up to 50 contacts. It is necessary to open new covid centers and prevent the virus from entering health facilities. ” The paper states that “at two clinics of the Clinical Center Nis, which take care of patients with covid symptoms, the situation is different from the official data because, as we find out, at least 10 people died.”

Today, he quotes Predrag Đurić, an epidemiologist, who says: “Fans cannot dictate measures against the epidemic instead of doctors.” It is easiest to blame the citizens. The pandemic has not taught us anything. “

“Both good and bad news” claims the Informer under the title “The sun kills the corona but it is also dangerous to health”.
