Bosnia and Herzegovina has registered 1,922 new cases of COVID-19 and 43 new cases of coronavirus-related death in the past 24 hours.
Most cases are from Sarajevo, which remains the biggest hotspot in the country. The pressure on healthcare providers is increasing. Media have reported don long lines of people waiting outside of COVID-19 outpatient clinics in Sarajevo, where they wait for hours to be tested or to receive treatment. Hospital capacities are also filled. Dr. Bakir Nakas warned healthcare authorities that they must engage private medical institutions if they want to prevent collapse of the system.
In the meantime, doctors and nurses in Mostar staged a one-hour warning strike to express their dissatisfaction with their status and problems with implementation of the collective agreement.
