What holiday measures will be in place? "New Year celebrations could lead to a new wave on Jan 15"
He does not expect that there will be a change of position during the announced session on Monday
The celebration of the New Year could lead to a new wave of the coronavirus epidemic in the middle or in the second half of January, Dr. Branislav Tiodorovic warned at a press conference after the session of the Crisis HQ today.
"The sale of tickets could lead to the fact that already on January 15, 20, we0ll have a new wave and peaks with the worst numbers. We don't need that," he said.
He further stated that the measures could not have been adopted earlier because the figures were not satisfactory.
"We evaluate the situation every day, hoping for better results, and that doesn't not go in that dynamic. Today, nevertheless, we decided to regulate the weekend. To provide the population with the conditions to meet their needs. I don't expect that we will change our position on Monday either. Objectively, the conditions are not there to say that there will be a New Year's Eve like we're used to. Let's celebrate the holidays in our homes. If we respect that, we will create the conditions to celebrate the holidays properly in the future.
No one asked for permission. No one got permission for celebrations. Why would someone be organizing something, not only without asking us but also their local self-government," he said, when asked what measures are planned for the holidays and why no decision was made about it earlier.
