According to the Institute, the outbreak was registered back in February, and has been under control since March.

Thus far 114 people have been diagnosed with meningitis in nine Montenegrin municipalities.

Institute Director Boban Mugoša told B92 that there was no danger of a serious epidemic as the virus was transferred via dirty hands and provided personal hygiene was maintained, there was no danger of infection. He believes that the outbreak will be under complete control by the end of summer.
