Celebrations in restaurants banned in Novi Pazar: Ban to remain in force until situation improves
According to Prime Minister of Serbia Ana Brnabic, Novi Pazar is one of the worst-ranked municipalities when it comes to the number of vaccinated citizens
Starting today, organizing family festivities in hospitality establishments is prohibited in Novi Pazar. This means that weddings, birthday and other parties can no longer take place in cafes, restaurants, and hotels.
This decision was made on Friday by the City Headquarters for Emergency Situations in Novi Pazar, and it will be valid until the epidemiological situation there improves.
Earlier, the headquarters made the decision that students from all high schools in the territory of Novi Pazar should switch to online classes.
The reason why celebrations are banned only in this city is the increased number of Covid cases and a low vaccination rate. According to Prime Minister of Serbia Ana Brnabic, Novi Pazar is one of the municipalities that is ranked the worst when it comes to the number of citizens who have received the vaccine. Only 25.7 percent of the population in this city has been vaccinated against coronavirus.
During the previous 24 hours, one patient from Novi Pazar died in the General Hospital, while 22 people were hospitalized, of which 18 from Novi Pazar, two from Tutin and one each from Raska and Pozarevac.
Currently, 172 patients are being treated, of which seven are on ventilators, while six are receiving oxygen support.
362 people showed up at the Covid clinic of the Healthcare Center, of which 164 sought medical help for the first time due to symptoms caused by coronavirus.
Out of 154 rapid antigen tests performed with samples taken by nasal swabs, 30 came back positive, while another 141 PCR tests were also done.
From the beginning of the year until last week, a total of 214 people died in the General Hospital in Novi Pazar as a result of the consequences caused by Covid.
