“If we look at such a trend, it is certain that in the next few weeks we may reach four-digit numbers of hospitalized patients. As early as next week, about 4,000 infection cases can be expected on a daily basis,“Bekic said.
According to him, working age population and young people are most often infected, and the symptoms are fever, sore throat, pain in the bones, muscles, cough.
„But we can say that in recent days we are seeing somewhat more difficult clinical symptoms with fever,“ Bekic said.
