Minister Beros: Relaxing Coronavirus Measures Depends on 5 Elements

Lauren Simmonds

The coronavirus measures that we’ve all now become used to are constantly being questioned by many. The weather is improving, the leaves have turned green and the sun is gradually beginning to shine with more strength and vigor.

With people’s feet itching at the first signs of warmer, more stable weather approaching, the possibility of relaxing the Croatian Government’s stringent anti-epidemic measures are being discussed more and more frequently, and in some circles – with increasing levels of frustration.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 17th of April, 2020, Croatian Health Minister Vili Beros, who has become a household name since the beginning of the pandemic in Croatia, along with other members of the National Civil Protection Headquarters, paid a visit to the continental Croatian county of Krapina-Zagorje, not too far from Zagreb. A press conference was organised at the very end of the visit.

Health Minister Beros answered, among other things, a journalist’s question about the possibility of loosening the strict anti-epidemic measures still in place to attempt to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, COVID-19.

”The defense strategy [against coronavirus] is based on five elements, and the exit strategy depends solely on the epidemiological situation, not just the number of patients we have in one day, but a number of other elements, too.

The exit strategy and [what things will look like] when we loosen the measures are ready. It’s important that remain very careful. There is the possibility of decentralisation, that is, that we start with the relaxing of these measures first in the counties that aren’t significantly affected by the infection,” stated Minister Beros, as was reported by N1 Hrvatska.
