Epidemiologist Branislav Tiodorovic said today that there are 27 confirmed cases of coronaviruses in Nis, including a doctor.
Tiodorovic said in a statement to RTS that it was important that the virus did not enter the hospital in what he said was “that most terrible way.”
“When a partial epidemic, an imported case that came to us, started in Nis, we turned our attention to doctors not to come sick, not even from the cold. Not to come to their jobs. That's why we have one number, one hospitalized colleague at an infectious clinic, 19 citizens, including six doctors and two other nurses in home isolation, ”an epidemiologist told RTS.
Tiodorovic notes that it is ensured that the two Nis clinics where the infected doctors are operating.
“Let our colleagues be in self-isolation and thus try to create the conditions to break the transmission chain. Those who are in isolation are healthy, no one has problems, but they were in contact with those who brought the virus, “Tiodorovic said, Tanjug said.
According to him, the situation in Nis is under control.
“We are also monitoring home isolation and self-isolation, we hope that everything will go in the normal course,” Tiodorovic added.
He added that 12 people were discharged for home treatment.
“They are not completely healthy, but they can still be at home and their condition is monitored,” the epidemiologist said.
