The FBiH entity, on the other hand, recorded only three new cases after testing 339 samples, Zlatan Perisic from the FBiH Health Ministry said, adding that it is normal to continue to have new sporadic cases, and warned that the second wave of Covid-19 is very likely.

“That is why we insist on caution and personal protective measures and we will continue to monitor the situation in the future,” Perisic said.
