SARAJEVO, April 8 (FENA) - Two buses with BiH nationals from the Republic of Austria are expected to arrive at the BiH border crossing Izačić tonight and all of them will pass through triage tents, which have been erected at border crossings, Head of the FBiH Civil Protection Crisis Staff, Fahrudin Solak, confirmed today.

He added that citizens who come to BiH will stay in tents until the health check is completed and if necessary tested for Covid-19.

“According to the epidemiologists, it will be decided whether the citizens will be sent to isolation in their resident municipality or whether they will stay in tents for one period or they will be sent to home isolation,” Solak explained.

Asked by reporters about the fact that Covid-19 coronavirus has already entered some health care facilities and what needs to be done to protect health professionals, Solak recalled that after the declaration of a natural and other disaster, it was requested that triage tents are erected before entering health care facilities.
