16. September 2020.

Presevo, Vranje - According to the latest data from the Institute of Public Health in Vranje, there were no new admissions in Vranje's COVID hospitals in the past 24 hours.  According to epidemiologists, the situation in the Pcinj district is stable, except in Presevo, where the number of new patients has increased in recent days, so that the situation in that municipality is uncertain.

The epidemiologist of the Vranje Institute, Sladjan Stankovic, says that there are no serious forms of the disease in Presevo, but that it is evident that the number of new patients has increased in recent days.

It is important now, Dr. Stankovic says, that people in that municipality see the doctor in a timely fashion, not ignore the symptoms, if they have a milder clinical picture, so that family members of the patients could be placed in isolation.

When it comes to other municipalities in the district, with the exception of Presevo, Bujanovac and Vranje, there were no new cases over the past three weeks.

Dr. Stankovic says that there is a possibility of the virus spreading in the coming period, and that personal responsibility and compliance with maintaining physical distance is necessary.

According to the latest data from the Institute of Public Health, 19 people are hospitalized in Vranje's COVID hospitals, three less than the previous day.
