June 18, 2020 - The National Coordination Body for Infectious Diseases (NKT) has taken the decision that protective masks be mandatory in all public places. The order comes into force today.
"The NKT, bearing in mind the dramatic increase in the number of individuals infected with Covid-19 in several countries in the region, and the number of new infections in Montenegro, took the decision on the wearing of protective masks in all public places," states the Twitter account of the Government of Montenegro.
The Institute of Public Health confirmed yesterday that there are currently seven active cases of coronavirus in Montenegro.
The Director of the Clinical Centre of Montenegro (KCCG), Jevto Eraković, told TVCG this morning that it is certain that all the newly registered cases of coronavirus in Montenegro have been imported. He said that, considering the irresponsible behaviour of citizens, it was to be expected that the virus would reappear in our country.
Eraković said that he expects that the number of new infections will be even higher in the coming days.
