New Zagreb Coronavirus Testing Site With Good Parking Capacities Opened

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 24th of October, 2020, a new Zagreb coronavirus testing site was opened in the eastern parking lot of the Zagreb Fair (Zagrebacki Velesajam) this Saturday. The opening was attended by the director of the Croatian Institute of Public Health, Krunoslav Capak, and the director of the Andrija Stampar Institute, Zvonimir Sostar.

This new Zagreb coronavirus testing location was made possible by the Croatian Institute of Public Health, the Andrija Stampar Institute and the Dr. Fran Mihaljevic Clinic for Infectious Diseases in order to reduce the crowds on Gupceva zvijezda and in Rockefellerova and Mirogojska streets, because in this new Zagreb coronavirus testing location there is a large car park sufficient for everyone who will come for testing.

Testing at the new location will be conducted every day from 08:00 to 11:00, according to a report from N1. Capak said the flow at the new testing site will likely be much higher, meaning there will be less hanging around and crowding.

“Please tell people come here, not to Mirogojska and Rockefellerova. The samples taken here go to the laboratory in Rockefellerova anyway. Feel free to just come here, we’ll try to deal with all the swabs that come within 24 hours. Currently, HZJZ has a slightly reduced capacity because we have several positive employees and several of them are now in self-isolation. We have the capacity to cover both this space and the space in Rockefellerova,” said Capak.

Sostar thanked the Zagreb Fair for meeting the needs for this location and also thanked Krunoslav Capak, who, as he says, organised to put this new Zagreb coronavirus testing location into function as quickly as possible.

“This isn’t a joke, nor is it a game. Coronavirus has now also entered our homes for the elderly and infirm. We have reason to worry and as such, we should act accordingly. There are no foci, the virus spreads horizontally. We have more and more families becoming infected. Epidemiologists are working from 7 in the morning until 1 in the morning,” warned Sostar.
