Vucic talks about state of emergency and curfew: "I don't think we are close to that"
Proposals for introduction of a curfew were made yesterday
A day after the Crisis HQ announced that it had proposed reintroducing a curfew in Serbia to curb the spread of coronavirus, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that we are not close to that.
"I don't think we are close to a state of emergency. What is important and what is a new idea, I will ask the government, Ana (Brnabic) and the minister of finance, to build another hospital in the vicinity of Novi Sad. We do a lot of testing. The number of infected people is growing somewhat slower than in November and December, thanks to the vaccines. We need to be more disciplined and doctors are right when they ask for that. We all act irresponsibly, but people are fed up, they have to work. But the Government of Serbia will decide," said Vucic.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic arrived in Sarajevo today where he handed over a donation of 5,000 vaccines against coronavirus at the international airport in that town.
At Sarajevo's Butmir Airport, the president of Serbia was welcomed by Chairman of the Presidency of BiH Milorad Dodik, and the Bosniak member of the Presidency, Sefik Dzaferovic.
Dr. Predrag Kon said on RTS this morning that there is no alternative to a state of emergency and a curfew.
"It's completely clear what our position is. If introducing a curfew is not accepted, we will continue to work in such circumstances. It must be understood that this is no longer some game, so that people can continue to move around. As long as someone is in the red zone, and simply this can't go on like this, it can't, that must be stressed. It has to be stopped. And the only way to stop it is to propose what we have proposed," said Kon.
