“Those people work in difficult professional and medical conditions, are the most exposed to infection and are at risk of burnout,” Peović told a news conference.

She said the situation could be compared with that of soldiers in the 1991-95 war whose years spent in war were recognised as double years of service.

“Work in respiratory support centres and in coveralls can qualify as particularly difficult, intensive and life-threatening work,” Peović said, calling on the government once again to secure a legal basis for an accelerated retirement scheme for those workers.

She recalled that her party had submitted a motion to that effect in early January but the government rejected it “practically without any explanation.”
