Soldiers, patrolling with guns and sanitary masks on their faces, can be seen patrolling the streets of Belgrade, on Tuesday. This decision came after Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic declared a state of emergency over coronavirus, on Sunday night.

In footage from Belgrade’s city centre, the armed forces can be seen patrolling hospitals as well as Republic square and the popular Knez Mihailova street.

The state of emergency also means that schools, kindergartens, universities, gyms, stadiums, night clubs and cafes are all closed. While anybody over the age of 65 is not allowed to leave their house.

Serbia is currently reporting 65 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and remains one of the few European countries yet to report a death.
