Coronavirus Tests No Longer Required to Enter Serbia

BELGRADE, Serbia — Tests for the new coronavirus are no longer required to enter Serbia.

The government made the decision Thursday as part of an easing of lockdown measures. Previously, a negative test no older than 72 hours was necessary to avoid self-isolation for two weeks.

Serbia closed its borders during a state of emergency when infections surged in March. Experts say the situation has stabilized despite clusters in the south of the country.

The Balkan country Thursday reported 86 new cases. Authorities say 10,919 have been infected and 253 have died.

Critics have warned that the government has been too quick to lift protection measures. Some rules remain, such as a ban on large gatherings.
