Zagreb, 16 May 2021 (Hina/MIA) — Serbian health workers have administered more than four million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine and coronavirus figures have been visibly falling in recent days.
Experts warn, however, that the epidemiological situation is still uncertain.
By 10 pm Saturday, a total of 4.01 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines were administered, of which 2,279,000 were second doses. Slightly more than 42 percent of adults above the age of 18 have received booster shots.
“We are moving towards the goal of having three million people vaccinated with both doses by the end of June,” a state secretary at the Serbian Health Ministry, Mirsad Đerlek, told the RTS public broadcaster.
Health authorities on Saturday reported 18 Covid-19-related fatalities and 705 new infections. A total of 2,963 people are being treated for Covid-19 in hospitals and 97 of them are on ventilators.
So far, 705,890 people have been infected, 6,664 people have died and the mortality rate is 0.94 percent.
The country’s Covid-19 response team on Friday additionally relaxed restrictions for the services sector, allowing gatherings with a maximum 100 participants.
Prime Minister Ana Brnabić said that if current trends continue, events such as weddings and family celebrations could be allowed as of May 21.
