According to the latest figures, the number of newly infected in the Vlasotince municipality is 72, which is 16 more than yesterday, the local site reported.

The emergency headquarters of Vlasotince municipality therefore requested the Republic Crisis Staff to postpone the implementation of relaxed measures in the area of Vlasotince municipality last night.

These are measures that are set to take effect today, approved by the Crisis Staff on 24 April.

"Given that the Vlasotince municipality has less than 30.000 inhabitants and 72 are infected with the coronavirus, we believe that it currently represents one of the largest hotspot in southeastern Serbia, but also in the country on the whole, and that these measures should be postponed for at least 10 days in order to prevent the spread of the contagion", reads a memo sent to the Republic Crisis Staff.
