In Serbia a curfew was set in the Corona crisis against the population. After 20:00 everybody has to stay at home, nobody is allowed on the streets except police, military and people who have to go to work. People over 65 years old in the cities and 70 years old in the countryside are not allowed to leave their flats or houses. Who does not keep to these rules will be arrested immediately.

At the same time the Prime Minister Ana Brnabic has declared a total media ban. All information about the Corona crisis must be collected and may only be published when the government gives the OK.

A reporter Ana Lalic was arrested because of her article. She wrote about the miserable conditions in the hospitals that neither doctors, nurses nor patients get any protection.
