"When we were struck by variola vera, there was not as much fear, panic and lies as there is today for something that has weaker symptoms than the ordinary flu. If there were no tests, one would not even know what these people died of, since it was thought to be from flu or sneezing when it comes to the people with impaired immunity and damaged health", he said.
"When the first case of infection emerges, you will find out from the authorities," Minister Loncar says, asking citizens to be reasonable and to believe the facts.
"This is the only way we can continue dealing with current health threat without consequences."
He stated that we are fully prepared for anything that can happen and that we have the necessary equipment.
One of the topics discussed was the name of the candidate for EU Special Envoy for the Belgrade-Pristina negotiations. "Borrell has informed Vucic who it is, but that information is still kept secret", says a source of "Blic" from diplomatic circles.
President of Serbia and Borrell also discussed the future of dialogue.
Speaking of demarcation, he says he realized that the Serbs would never accept something that was our chance and that we would regret it dearly.
"I understood the message of the people, it was a great chance for us, but we missed it", Vucic told TV Happy.
He says we will do worse in the future, but no one will be able to blame him.

Among the guests was the Patriarch of the Serbian Orthodox Church, Irinej.
Earlier today, Vucic bestowed decorations on the occasion of the national holiday, addressed the ceremony, and met with representatives of Serbs from Montenegro and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
