Six more coronavirus cases have been confirmed in Serb-majority municipalities in the north of Kosovo. The first two cases were registered in the Zubin Potok municipality, epidemiologist Aleksandar Antonijevic, with the president of the Kosovska Mitrovica PA, Aleksandar Spiric and Zubin Potok Mayor Stevan Vulovic, announced at a press conference today.

One more person from North Mitrovica tested positive for coronavirus. There are currently 18 cases in this municipality. Two new cases were registered in Zvecan, where there are 9 cases in total, while one more person tested positive in Leposavic. The first two cases have been recorded in Zubin Potok. So far, south of the Ibar, only one person has tested positive. In total, there are 33 confirmed coronavirus cases in Kosovo Serb communities.

The patients are in stable condition. While 8 patients are receiving treatment at the Infectious Clinic, 5 patients were transported to the Hospital Center Nis and two patients are receiving treatment in Hospital Center Belgrade. On the other hand, 17 patients are located in the student dormitories in North Mitrovica.

The head of the Kosovska Mitrovica Provisional Authority, Aleksandar Spiric stressed that citizens must respect the protection measures, which also includes avoiding unnecessary travel between the two municipalities.

The Kosovska Mitrovica and Zvecan emergency teams decided to suspend travel between the two municipalities this morning.

North Mitrovica and Zvecan municipalities were placed in quarantine on Friday, as per the decision by the Serbian-sponsored emergency teams of the two municipalities. This measure, however, was imposed with Pristina’s „full coordination“ with local governments in the north, as several government officials confirmed in Pristina yesterday, including Kosovo Health Minister, Arben Vitiu.
