The Czech government confirmed on Saturday, July 11, that Serbia and Montenegro were added to the list of countries with a high coronavirus risk.
As a result, Czechs need a 14-day quarantine or a COVID-19 test upon returning to their home country.
Serbia recorded 18 fatalities and 386 new cases over 24 hours in what Prime Minister Ana Brnabic described as a “dramatic increase”.
A wave of new infections came after a number of sporting events were allowed to go ahead amid minimal social distancing.
These included a tennis tournament organised by multiple grand slam champion Novak Djokovic, who tested positive for coronavirus along with three other participants at his ill-fated Adria Tour.
To date, Serbia has logged 370 coronavirus deaths and almost 18,000 cases.
In the last 24 hours, 58 people out of 468 tested on coronavirus were conformed positive, the country’s Institute for Public Health said on Friday, the FoNet news agency reported.
It added that there were 733 active cases.
Since the beginning of June, ten people died in the coastal republic, while in the last 24 hours, five patients recovered.
Podgorica declared the end of the epidemic on June 2.
