Healthcare authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina have detected three more COVID-19 infection cases on Sunday, two in Republika Srpska (RS) region and one in the Federation (FBiH), bringing the total number of the patients to 24.
Only minutes after RS Prime Minister Radovan Viskovic told media that there are two more confirmed cases in this part of Bosnia, general manager of Sarajevo University Clinical Centre, Sebija Izetbegovic, told N1 that one patient who recently returned from Germany tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
In response to the virus outbreak in the country, the authorities of both semi-autonomous regions as well as the state-level authorities have introduced a number of measures to prevent the virus spread.
The schools have been temporarily closed in the whole country for at least 15 days, while the control at all border crossings has become stricter.
Bosnia Presidency member Milorad Dodik announced on Saturday that all citizens returning from the western countries will have to stay in 14-day quarantine in medically equipped tents, that will be installed on all border crossings before they resume the journey or return to the original destinations.
