"Today is certainly the most difficult day for Serbia in terms of the number of newly infected," said President Vučić following the meeting, adding that there was no talk of new restrictive measures.
"We will severely sanction those who do not respect the already introduced measures, and you will be able to see that in the coming days. We have no other choice. We cannot close down the economy, life, but what is absolutely minimal - will have to be complied with," said President Vučić and stated that they discussed the health care system and how to help it. He also announced a one-off aid of 10,000 dinars for 120,000 health workers, as well as a significant increase in salaries compared to other categories in the public sector.

"We also discussed how to counter the disturbing figures and the expanding infection. We also tackled the functioning of the health system and additional equipment for hospitals and health centres, as well as how to manage that non-covid patients are not deprived of care and health protection. We also discussed as to how we should react in the future regarding vaccines and how to supply additional quantities of vaccines against flu," said President Vučić and emphasised that the situation is particularly challenging in Belgrade and Kragujevac. He noted that 30 beds will be provided in the Clinical-Hospital Centre "Dragiša Mišović" in Belgrade, and that tomorrow a part of beds will be provided in the Zemun hospital, followed by a part of the hospital in Pančevo, and that the next, as COVID hospital, will be opened as the City hospital in Zvezdara.

"We still keep the things under control. Figures are surely worrying; however, along with all those worrying figures, the situation remains significantly better than in all other parts of Europe. The problem is that a part of our health workers is infected," said President Vučić. He pointed out that construction works on two new COVID hospitals in Batajnica and Kruševac run per the schedules, and that the hospital in Batajniuca will be opened before the 1st December, while the one in Kruševac will start with admission of patients not later than the end of the year.
