Member of the Crisis Staff of the Federal Ministry of Health and Assistant Minister of Public Health Goran Cerkez said that 632 samples were tested in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the past 24 hours, of which 2 were positive.
“New cases are from Zenica Doboj Canton. So far, 33,273 have been tested in Federation, and the virus has been confirmed in 10,013 people. There are 17 people in hospitals, none of them on respirators. We have 95 active cases while 881 people have recovered. We can assess that the situation is stable,” said Cerkez, Avaz news portal reports.
He also referred to the abolition of mandatory self-isolation measures.
“The Crisis Staff of the Federal Ministry of Health did not propose this measure. We think she should have waited until the end of the month. We propose the abolition of measures every 15 days after the epidemiological analysis. We felt that by the end of the month the measure needed to be mitigated and removed and others prepared. Given that a large influx of citizens is expected, especially due to the holidays in BiH, we must say that we will not be able to control the situation, which is a special epidemiological risk and a great possibility of infection in BiH. We understand the citizens and their desire to meet with their families, but we ask you all to adhere to the measures. It is the responsibility of every citizen,” said Cerkez.
