Head of the Serbian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Irinej, succumbed to the COVID-19 on November 20. The 90-year-old was admitted at a military hospital since November 4. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said, “I was honoured to know you. People like you never depart.” Notably, on November 1, Irinej went against the COVID precautionary measures, where he led a funeral rally of the Church's senior cleric with thousands of participants.
