ZAGREB, Nov 19, 2020 – Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic said on Thursday a decision on new anti-coronavirus measures would be adopted this week and that they would restrict the number of people allowed to gather and the business hours of bars and restaurants as well as concern work from home and in shifts.

“The fact is that the numbers are rising and this week we had a weekly increase of about 10%. Last Sunday we said that it is not enough to stabilise growth rates but make sure that the number of new infections starts falling,” he told the press after a cabinet meeting.

As for gatherings, Bozinovic said even a gathering of ten could be a problem if infected persons came and did not comply with the measures.

The point of everything is self-discipline, he said, adding that family gatherings and festivities were the best medium for the virus to spread.

He went on to say that according to preliminary reports, yesterday’s remembrance procession for war victims in Vukovar was conducted professionally and correctly. He saw that some participants did not wear masks, but said that they did take them at the envisaged points.

Bozinovic said the measures and the messages in Vukovar yesterday had been conceived well and that the result was disproportionately fewer walkers than in the past. “Anything else in terms of bans and law enforcement would have sent the wrong picture, which was the furthest thing from our minds.”

As for an unannounced procession in Split which involving hundreds of football fans last night, he said “that’s certainly not good.” He said he hoped there would be no consequences and that the police took action in line with protection of the peace.
