Three weeks after declaring it was free of the coronavirus, Montenegro has reported a new COVID-19 case — a person who arrived from neighbouring Bosnia, APA reports citing Reuters.

It was the first new infection reported in the tiny Balkan country since May 5.


The Institute for Public Health, which is tasked with combating the new coronavirus, said the infected patient was in self-isolation in the Balkan country’s capital, Podgorica.

“An epidemiological investigation is under way and initial information suggests that the number of contacts (the patient had in Montenegro) was limited,” it said.
