Preventive measures are still necessary, since there is a population that is sensitive to coronavirus, says a member of the Crisis HQ, immunologist Srdja Jankovic.

He stressed that preventive measures can reduce the risk of transmitting the virus, and that is why there is insistence on maintaining physical distance, wearing masks indoors, as well as on personal hygiene.

"All that can help, but the virus is still present and there is a potential for its spread," Jankovic told TV Pink.

He said that there is an increasing number of infected people who do not have any signs of the disease. He explained that they can also infect others and that this is one of the reasons why the virus is spreading through the population.

He recalled that China was the first to have an epidemic of coronavirus and that they suppressed it, so they are now in the situation of "keeping watch", which also awaits Serbia.

Asked if measures such as a state of emergency or curfew can be expected again if the virus returns in the fall, he replied that he thinks this is unlikely.

"I think that we will have more selective measures as each hotspot, i.e., cluster appears. These are measures that imply isolation of contacts," he emphasized.

The biggest challenge in this phase with coronavirus is to incorporate preventive, life-saving measures into people's everyday activities.

"It's not realistic for life around the world to stand still for a year. It is now a challenge to return to everyday activities, while building-in preventive measures so that human lives would not be endangered," he stressed.
