Serbia is 3rd in Europe by the number of people vaccinated against coronavirus, first in the region
In the next few days, another 25,000 Russian vaccines should arrive in our country
Serbia is third in Europe in terms of the number of people vaccinated against coronavirus per one million inhabitants, with Great Britain and Malta ahead of our country. When it comes to the region, Serbia tops the list, followed by Slovenia, Romania, Croatia and Hungary.
According to the latest data, coronavirus had been confirmed in another 2,080 people in Serbia as of Tuesday afternoon, over the previous 24 hours. As a result of the infection, 19 more people died. There are currently 4,379 hospitalized patients, 168 of whom are on ventilators.
The state wants to stick to the immunization plan and for that plan to be respected, the Ministry of Health said.
President Aleksandar Vucic told RTS that Serbia has so far agreed the acquisition of 6.5 million vaccines against coronavirus, but the problem is that there there is a shortage of vaccines.
Vucic said that he had a meeting with Chinese Ambassador Chen Bo.
"I literally pleaded and, knowing President Xi, we will receive significant quantities of vaccines from China before May-June, and if there is a surprise, in February. I am a skeptic, but I am fighting," Vucic stressed.
The president said that 11,700 Pfizer vaccines arrived a few days ago, and then another 10,000, and announced that batches of 25,000 Russian vaccines would arrive twice in the next few days.
