SARAJEVO, March 25, 2020 - Bosnia and Herzegovina’s young basketball player Dzenan Musa has decided to help the Cantonal Hospital in Bihac with a valuable donation to combat Coronavirus pandemic.
 
The Brooklyn Nets NBA basketball player, born in Bihac, has announced that he has made contact with the supplier and expects the necessary appliances to be shipped within the next fifteen days.
 
The Authority for Inspection Affairs has published a list of persons, against whom offence proceeding will be initiated because of  breaking isolation rules in the state entity Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.  Two football players are also on that list. These are the goalkeeper Emir Plakalo, who plays in Sweden and former back player of Zeljeznicar Semir Kerla, who plays in Lithuania. Like all other people entering Bosnia and Herzegovina, they had to undergo isolation measures in order to prevent spreading of Coronavirus infection.
 
"It is true that I arrived in Bosnia and Herzegovina a few days ago, but there was a miss understanding with filling out the form on the plane. The original address was in Sarajevo at my parents house, so I decided not to take the risk and contacted immediately the Institute and explained to them, that I want to be alone on the address in Zenica, in order to protect myself and others. I properly informed authorities in charge in Zenica. Since March 20 I am in self-isolation and did not break any ban measures. So it was a problem with the address, but in the end everything was clarified. Before I left Sweden, I was tested negative to COVID-19", said Plakalo for SportSport.ba.
 
On March 24, the second case of death of a person infected with Coronavirus in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
 
As it is confirmed, it was a 53 years old man from the city of Konjic. He worked as a driver for a director of the Igman Company in Konjic, both of them positive to Coronavirus.
 
In Bosnia and Herzegovina the number of infected people with COVID-19 is 150.
 
The EU is considering two ways to assist the country, including quick support in provision of up to EUR 7 million worth of medical equipment and mid-term adjustment, and enforcement of EU support in the amount of up to EUR 50 million for the economic development programmes.
