Dr Kon before Crisis Staff session: We will request 10-day LOCKDOWN
A session of the Crisis Staff should be held this week, and epidemiologist Predrag Kon says that the medical part is of the opinion that more restrictive measures should be introduced in terms of reducing contacts, which would mean shortening working hours, and that for ten days only what is vital and essential should be open.
Kon says that the medical part of the Crisis Staff had consultations with Prime Minister Ana Brnabic and that they insisted on the implementation of what they had proposed last time.
“Since the last session of the Crisis Staff, the situation has not improved. Some stabilization is evident, but at an almost catastrophic level, and that is certainly not an improvement,” Dr Kon emphasizes.
He points out that there has been no improvement when it comes to the scope of immunization.
The position that will be presented by the medical part of the crisis staff is a 10-day lockdown.
“It goes without saying that there should be restrictive measures to reduce contacts, which would mean shortening working hours. Only what is vital and essential should be open and the lockdown should last for ten days,” says Dr Kon.
He points out that with such measures the results would be seen quickly, but that the fact is that this would only be a break, because without vaccination and with the relaxation of measures, the number of infected people would rise again
