Kon: In order to introduce curfew, a state of emergency must be declared. I am for strict measures
If citizens are not respecting the prescribed measures now and do not understand the situation, then the state must shut everything down, says Kon
The session of the Crisis HQ is scheduled for tomorrow morning, and the main topic will be measures that will prevent the virus from spreading during the New Year and Christmas. While PCR testing is increasingly certain for everyone entering the country, many are wondering what kind of New Year's Eve we can expect in Serbia. According to Dr. Predrag Kon, it should certainly not be expected that the measures that are now in force will be lifted.
"There must be some restrictions in order to avoid a catastrophe after the holidays. Whether it will be a ban on gatherings or limited operation of facilities remains to be considered. Certainly, the holidays are a risky period and something needs to be done," Dr. Kon told Mondo.
Kon said that if citizens are not respecting the prescribed measures now and do not understand the situation, then the state must shut everything down.
"In order to introduce curfew, a state of emergency must first be declared. Everything else is unconstitutional. I am in favor of strict measures, but I am not the only one who has a say, the decision that is made jointly by the Crisis HQ will be crucial," says Dr. Predrag Kon.
According to statements made by members of the Crisis HQ, it is likely that foreign citizens, but also members of our diaspora coming to Serbia for the holidays will have to have proof that they are Covid-19 negative in order to be able to enter the country.
Yesterday, Prime Minister of Serbia Ana Brnabic said that the introduction of PCR testing is one of the measures currently being considered, recalling that the measures needed to keep the situation under control are appraised every day.
Doctors are warning that the arrival of a large number of people to Serbia would lead to the risk of infection during their stay here, which would put additional pressure on our healthcare system and flare up the epidemic.
