Shorter quarantine for the infected, booster dose after three months, lower test price

The number of citizens positive for coronavirus is growing, and the epidemiological situation in the country is extremely difficult and extraordinary, said today after the session of the Crisis Staff the Provincial Secretary of Health Zoran Gojković and appealed to everyone to respect the valid measures.

Gojković reported that the Crisis Staff decided to reduce the duration of quarantine for the infected from 10 to seven days, due to a milder form of the disease, and in order for the citizens to return to work as soon as possible.

It was also decided to reduce the time between the second and third dose of the vaccine to three months.

Gojković also said that the omicron strain dominates in Serbia and that it has been agreed to reduce the prices of tests at their own request, so PCR tests will cost 6,000 dinars instead of 9,000, and antigen tests instead of 3,500 – 1,800 dinars, reports Tanjug.

When it comes to the second semester in schools, Gojković said that from Monday, elementary school students in Vojvodina will continue their classes directly, while high school students from Vojvodina will start a combined type of classes.

The beginning of the second semester in schools in central Serbia will be decided on Tuesday, and Gojković says that they are the closest to a solution modeled on Vojvodina.

He added that in that case, the problem is the registered occurrence of the flu, which was not present last year.

Gojković also pointed out that the omicron strain dominates in Serbia.

Eight percent of health workers are infected in Vojvodina, and ten in Serbia

At this moment, eight percent of health workers in Vojvodina are infected with the crown, while in Serbia, 10 percent are infected, said the provincial secretary for health, Zoran Gojković.

He said that as many specialists as possible should be included in the examinations of patients and stated that the greatest burden is on the health workers, because, as he says, one doctor during the shift examines 40 to 50 patients.

Gojković concluded that in the fight against the pandemic, the most important thing is to infect as few patients as possible at one time.

He warned that most of the infected are working and young people.

“Doctors are treating everyone and the health system is functioning, but it is necessary to respect epidemiological measures,” Gojković said, reports Tanjug.

He also said that 58.6 people in Serbia were vaccinated with the first dose, and said that the state did everything to ensure that all patients were taken care of.

There is no need for a fourth dose yet

Provincial Secretary of Health and member of the Crisis Staff Zoran Gojković said that there is still no need for the fourth dose in Serbia.

In statements to the media after the session of the Crisis Staff, Gojković explained that all decisions on vaccination are made in accordance with scientific research, adding that for now there is no scientific confirmation that a fourth dose is needed.

“Slowly with the fourth dose,” Gojković said, reports Tanjug.

He called on all citizens to be vaccinated and reiterated that it is necessary in order to suppress the spread of the virus.
