BELGRADE (Serbia), April 16 (SeeNews) - Serbia's government said it has introduced a ban on human medicine exports for 30 days as of April 15 to avoid shortages during the coronavirus crisis.

Medicines that are manufactured exclusively for foreign markets and are not registered in Serbia will be exempt from the ban, the government said in a notice published in Serbia's State Gazette on Wednesday.

The government may issue special acts to allow the export of certain medicines during the validity of the ban, it added.

Serbia has so far confirmed 4,873 cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and 99 deaths related to the disease.
