As she said, we are approaching the fall season more ready than in the coming months.
Dr Predrag Kon said that the epidemiological situation is slightly improving and that there is a gradual lowering in the number of patients in the hospitals.
"The number of examinations in Belgrade is being monitored and there is a clear decrease compared to the past."
Epidemiologist Kon said that the measures are still mandatory.

Brnabic: I understand the frustration and I share it
Regarding the petition of the doctors about the change of the Crisis Staff, Ana Brnabić says that those doctors should comment on their dissatisfaction.
"We see frustrations all over the world. In Italy, they filed a private lawsuit against Prime Minister Conte because he did not introduce measures in a certain area ... I understand the frustration and I can say that I share it. July was one of the most difficult months in our lives. The whole world was taken by surprise. We did our best and fought. We are now much more ready to welcome autumn season," Brnabić said.
She stated that the list includes doctors who left Serbia, so they might not be able to know well how our health care system works.
"We're going to open another COVID lab, we're going to open two more COVID hospitals."
The measures will be lifted gradually, the masks will remain in force
Dr Kon said about the United Doctors Against Kovid petiton: "We are on the same side".
Clear instructions for schools
"I listened carefully to Minister Šarčević. I strive to give clear criteria for how school administrations will work, not to give models so that they could decide for themselves. I'm in favor of giving clear criteria to schools. Online teaching is something that worked well, it gave good results. We were the only country in Europe that did not lose a day of classes during the pandemic," Prime Minister Brnabic said.
We are working on introducing additional digital textbooks, she added.
