As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, at a recent press conference held by the National Civil Protection Headquarters, Minister Bozinovic touched on the weather conditions of winter and what opening the terraces of catering and hospitality establishments would mean for the country’s epidemiological picture, which has become favourable over the last few weeks.

”If it was safe outside for the terraces to be open, then they would be, it’s still cold, this still isn’t the period in which viruses, including his one, find it more difficult to spread. If our more favourable trends are better by the 15th and if some new variant of the virus doesn’t turn up here, and we hope that the situation will be better with the vaccine, then we can talk about correcting things to everyone’s satisfaction.

Our goal is to prevent the situation from November and December from happening again, as that was when our healthcare system and capacities were on the verge of not being able to handle the situation,” said Minister Bozinovic.

The director of the Croatian Institute of Public Health, Krunoslav Capak, also weighed in.

”We have a further mitigated downward trend. Sisak-Moslavina County has the highest numbers, Istria has the lowest. We’re in seventh place in the ranking of European Union countries. We’re in twentieth place in regard to those EU countries in terms of mortality. In the last week, the average share of positives in Croatia has been 11.2,” Capak said.

”We received 409 reports of side effects from the Pfizer vaccine and 11 with Moderna. These are mostly local reactions such as headaches,” he stated.
