The Serbian government has reimposed the Covid-19 lockdown that had been lifted at the beginning of May as 13 people had died and 299 new cases had been confirmed in the last 24 hours. People protested the government's handling of the pandemic and tried to storm the parliament building a few hours after the Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic announced that the hospitals of the capital city Belgrad were nearing maximum capacity. He also added that "We probably relaxed too much" and that "Everyone thought it was all over".
