The Serbian Army has opened a camp in Morovic to accommodate citizens of the Republic of Serbia who are returning from abroad.
The Ministry of Defense, with the Ministry of the Interior and competent sanitary services, will be determining who will enter the camp in accordance with the assessment of doctors, along with those who are our citizens but do not have a registered place of residence in our country.
Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin and Chief of the General Staff of the Serbian Army General Milan Mojsilovic visited the camp and once again made an appeal to citizens to obey instructions and listen to the authorities in order to protect themselves and others.
"In line with the orders of the commander-in-chief and in line with the rules governing the state of emergency, the Serbian Army has established a reception camp for all those who either do not have a registered residence in the territory of the Republic of Serbia, but are our citizens, or whom our doctors at the border appraise might become a health risk," Minister Vulin stressed.
Such persons, Minister Vulin added, will be placed in the reception camp in Morovic, where they will have to go through an appropriate period of isolation and intensive medical monitoring. In this way their health will be protected, as will the health of all citizens of Serbia.
"Everyone who thinks they should come to the Republic of Serbia must also accept the laws and rules in force in the Republic of Serbia, both during and after the state of emergency. The Ministry of Defense, together with the Serbian Army, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and members of the border police, and of course with the competent health services, will take care of the health of the people who will be in the camp in Morovic," he said.
According to the Minister of Defense, the Serbian Army will, as needed, open several more quarantine camps also for those coming from countries affected by the virus.
"In that way we will enable everyone to enjoy healthcare, but without in any way endangering the health of all other citizens of Serbia," Minister Vulin said.
Deputy Commander of the Joint Operations Command Major General Ilija Todorov said that in accordance with decisions and orders, the Serbian Army set up the camp in Morovic in the shortest amount of time.
"All conditions have been created here in this camp, not only for life and work, but also for control and prevention and for those situations that may surprise us. In this sense, we are ready to continue to carry out our tasks in accordance with the decision and order of our commander-in-chief," General Todorov stressed.
The tent settlement in Morovic is ready and can accommodate up to 500 people to whom the Army will be providing healthcare, accommodation, and food.
Taking part in today's tour of the camp in Morovic were also Assistant Director General of Police General Slobodan Malesic, Commander of the 1st Brigade of the Serbian Army Brigadier General Zoran Naskovic and representatives of the Military Health Directorate.
