Sarajevo is going into Lockdown this Weekend, East Sarajevo is tightening Controls

The epidemiological situation in Canton Sarajevo (CS) is becoming increasingly difficult. Yesterday’s balance was 650 newly infected, while 16 people have passed away as a result of coronavirus infection. The epidemiological picture has worsened in East Sarajevo as well. However, unlike the CS, there will be no new measures for now.

While a lockdown has been announced in the CS for this weekend, there are no new measures for the upcoming weekend in the city of East Sarajevo. However, a more rigorous control was announced.

In this city, the epidemiological situation has significantly worsened. According to epidemiologist Biljana Mijovic, there are more registered patients in the 8 days of March than in the whole of January. The Hospital Serbia is overloaded since it currently has 66 patients, 3 of them on a respirator.

The citizens of East Sarajevo have different opinions on whether it is necessary to introduce more rigorous measures.

Officials from East Sarajevo say there is a fear of people overflowing from CS during the weekend lockdown. As they say, special attention in the upcoming period will be focused on the ski resorts that are under the jurisdiction of the city and city municipalities, BHRT writes.
