SARAJEVO, April 6 (FENA) - Prime Minister of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Fadil Novalić, expressed his condolences today to all those who lost someone from Covid-19 coronavirus and wished recovery for the citizens suffering from the virus.

He commended the behavior of citizens who follow the instructions of the competent authorities, and in addition, the health sector is most responsible for the fact that the pandemic has been controlled so far and urged citizens to continue to follow the instructions and be disciplined.

He also thanked pensioners over the age of 65, who collected their pensions and did what was necessary, and thanked those under the age of 18 who, when listening to the instructions of the elderly, were minimally exposed to the pandemic.

The Government of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina has purchased 150.000 new tests, which is a significant number in addition to 20.000 so far, to begin with mass testing.

“That is a sufficient number and if necessary we will respond and purchase more,” said Novalić.

“According to information from the health sector, the procurement of equipment for the sector is continuing, namely ventilators and suits for healthcare professionals. We will continue to support citizens and doctors in the fight against the virus,” FBiH Prime Minister Fadil Novalić announced.
