As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, while PM Andrej Plenkovic has voiced his desire for measure relaxations, he has pointed out that there are still things which must be monitored.
”If some of our foreign friends were to come to Croatia to visit they’d think that we have a very flexible regime indeed. We’re constantly keeping an eye on the public health aspect of the pandemic, but also the economic one,” said the Prime Minister, who confirmed that Minister Vili Beros had informed him that the latest numbers across the Croatia continue to be very favourable.
“Beros spoke about it all recently. The current mood at European Union level is such that due to new variants of the virus, which are obviously more deadly (or more transmissuble), there is a high level of caution. Some EU member states are continuing to opt for even more new restrictions. There are many countries that have a curfew in place, which is something which has limited everything,” explained PM Andrej Plenkovic.
“The reduced dynamic in terms of the roll out of the vaccination represents yet another reason to exercise caution,” says the prime minister. He stated, however, that the ministers had been ordered to prepare areas where a small step forward could be made in that regard.
“We’re giving out generous funds, we’ve had these new measures in place since back at the end of November and the responsibility of people in general has had an effect,” he noted, adding that the government is pleased with the downturn in terms of new cases of infection which is continuing, and he didn’t want to comment on the situation regarding children returning to normal schooling.
