BELGRADE, Serbia — Serbia’s state television says that police have arrested the manager of a nursing home in eastern Serbia following an outbreak of the new coronavirus at the institution.
The outbreak at the Radost, or Joy, nursing home in the eastern town of Negotin last month killed six people and infected 49, including the manager herself.
She is suspected of failure to implement measures against the new coronavirus to protect the nursing home, the RTS report says.
Last month, police also arrested the head of a nursing home in the southern city of Nis after 139 people were infected with the new coronavirus at the institution.
Serbia has reported nearly 11,000 cases while over 200 people have died.
