With 289 new coronavirus cases reported across Bosnia since Friday - 99 of them in the capital alone - the country has on Saturday reached its new record in the number of newly confirmed infections within a 24-hour time period.

Of the 1,288 samples tested in Bosnia's semi-autonomous Federation (FBiH) region, 186 came back positive, the FBiH Public Health Institute said.

Health authorities in the other semi-autonomous region, Republika Srpska, reported 103 new coronavirus cases.

Bosnia has seen a sudden spike in new coronavirus cases since mid-June and the total of people who tested positive for the virus in the country so far has surpassed 5,000.

Nearly 200 people have died due to COVID-19 in Bosnia and more than 2,500 have recovered.
