State of Natural Disaster in the Fede​ratio​n of BiH will not be declared

At the session of the Federal Staff of Civil Protection, headed by the Minister of Finance of Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina Jelka Milicevic, deputies discussed the declaration of a state of natural disaster in the Federation of BiH at the proposal of the Crisis Staff of the Ministry of Health of FBiH, Vijesti.ba writes.

After a discussion focusing on the responsibility of the cantons, members of the Federal Civil Protection Staff agreed that no proposal would be sent to the Federal Government to declare a state of emergency in the FBiH.

The reason for that, as Avaz finds out, is that only one canton has so far declared a state of emergency, West Herzegovina, while the other nine have not done so.

We remind you that the Crisis Staff of the Ministry of Health of the FBiH two days ago sent a proposal to the Federal Staff of Civil Protection to declare a state of natural disaster.

In the last ten days, the coronavirus took 349 lives in Bosnia and Herzegovina, according to data from the BiH Ministry of Civil Affairs.

The past 24 hours brought us another black record, this time in the number of deaths, there were as many as 73 (52 in Federation of BiH, 19 Republika Srpska, 2 Brcko District).

So far, the coronavirus has killed a total of 1,583 people in BiH (983 FBiH, 560 RS, 40 Brcko) and infected 63,419 (39,945 FBiH, 22,637 RS, 837 Brcko), Vijesti.ba writes.

On the last day of October, we had 1,234 deaths (792 FBiH, 416 RS, 26 Brčko), and to date, in the past ten days, another 349 lives were lost (191 FBiH, 144 RS, 14 Brcko District).

Also, in the observed period, the number of confirmed cases of corona increased from 50,090 to 63,419, which means that in ten days we recorded 13,329 newly infected (8,274 FBiH, 4,791 RS, 264 Brcko District).
