SARAJEVO, March 25 (FENA) - The Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina's government has appointed today a new Crisis Staff of the FBiH Civil Protection Administration because they were not satisfied with the previous one, the FBiH Prime Minister Fadil Novalić said.

He pointed out that an earlier composition with 21 people was unnecessary.

- They were not up to the task, especially considering the purchasing of medical equipment for the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina - said Novalic at a press conference.

Now, he added, he has formed a Crisis Staff of seven people from the most significant organizations implementing anti-coronavirus measures.

- We expect and ask the new composition of the crisis staff to be much more efficient - said Novalić.

He emphasized that the Federation of BiH has been intensively working on collecting data for the needs of all municipalities and cantons.

- Today's work is completed, we will be starting intensively and massively procuring all medical supplies from ventilators and tests to medical equipment for the medical sector. The time has come when we can guarantee a higher level of protection - said Novalić.
