A total of 4.525 people died, and the mortality rate is 0.94 percent. So far, 1.613.682 people have been vaccinated against coronavirus in Serbia, and as many as 592.903 citizens have received both doses.

"The situation is so dramatic that it cannot be otherwise," they said. Also, gathering at cemeteries across Serbia on Saturday is certainly the latest challenge to the epidemiological situation in Serbia. "All funeral services are told to organize control at cemeteries, that masks are obligatory and that no more than five people can gather around one grave site. Funeral services are a custom and we cannot forbid people to respect it, but they must respect the distance and they wear masks", stated epidemiologist Žarko Ranković, a member of the Niš city headquarters for emergency situations.
