Djokovic, who declined to comment on tennis, told reporters that he was wasting his time reading a book on "History of Serbia".
He also said he plans to start "posting physical exercises at my home on social networks".
Djokovic thanked China for sending a shipment of medical equipment and doctors to Serbia, where they are now helping guide the Belilde-based Cilil-19 strategy.

"I thank China for the bottom of my heart on behalf of myself and the entire country," he said.
