Coronavirus in Croatia: ZET Employees Begin Tram Disinfection

Lauren Simmonds

Coronavirus is spreading quickly and has people talking like very few things have in recent times. The virus has made itself known in a large number of countries across the world and Croatia is no exception. Europe, from the United Kingdom to the increasingly worrying situation in Italy, is gradually seeing more cases appear, and when it comes to coronavirus in Croatia, we have rolling updates here.

While many argue about the measures that need to be taken to help try to inhibit the spread of the virus, with the ”mask or not to mask” question dominating the topic, coronavirus in Croatia has caused talk about potentially closing borders and questions about the likely damage to the fast approaching tourist season.

Employees of ZET (Zagreb Electric Tram) have decided to take concrete action against coronavirus in Croatia by beginning to disinfect the trams, which are used by countless Zagreb residents on their daily commutes and foreigners from all over the world on a daily basis. Despite the fact that we’re still in cold and flu season, it appears that one can’t be too careful when it comes to large concentrations of people.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 29th of February, 2020, after ZET’s employees demanded worker protection against coronavirus, an employer reaction quickly followed.

“Liquid soap dispensers and hand sanitisers have been installed at all terminals, and at TP Dubrava, our valuable cleaning workers from the tram services are performing the disinfection of all of our trams returning from operation and for those which are preparing to go into operation,” the Union of Drivers and Traffic Workers of ZET wrote on Facebook in a pinned post entitled ”The protection of ZET employees from coronavirus”.

The post went on to state that the reaction from ZET when its employees expressed their desire for coronavirus protection was ”surprisingly fast”.
