On Thursday, officials in the RS confirmed that a father and son had tested positive for the virus after spending time in Italy. The latest case is connected – the patient travelled to Bosnia alongside the two.

Authorities are still appealing to the public to avoid panic.

“Every citizen is obligated to provide truthful information, whether they contracted the disease or suspect them might have. If they don’t do so – it is a crime,” Seranic said.
