Total of 2,350 people infected with coronavirus in Bosnia

May 21, 2020

New coronavirus cases have been reported across the country in the past 24 hours and the total is now 2,350, according to data published by Bosnia's Civil Affairs Ministry on Thursday.

Four more people have died due to Covid-19 since Wednesday and Bosnia’s death toll is now 140.

A total of 1,557 people have recovered.

Bosnian authorities have been gradually lifting the measures introduced to combat the spread of the virus since the end of April, including restrictions on movement for citizens, as the coronavirus curve seems to be flattening.

Both of Bosnia’s two semi-autonomous regions have lifted mandatory self-isolation requirements for Bosnians returning from abroad on Wednesday.

Authorities in the Serb-majority region, Republika Srpska (RS), are now discussing whether to lift the curfew while the other region, the Federation (FBiH), has already done so.

Bosnia has tested 56,997 of its citizens for the coronavirus so far.
