Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, March 15, 2020 – Economy Minister Darko Horvat said on Sunday in light of the coronavirus epidemic that Croatia had sufficient commodity stockpiles in warehouses to last for a month in the event of a government intervention.

“I just got back from the field. The warehouses are full, any supplies that are released are replenished. We are ready for nearly a month if the need arises for such an intervention,” Horvat told reporters ahead of a meeting of the national civil protection service.

He said that the State Inspectorate would monitor price movements for staples, and that if necessary, he would ban exports of certain products. “This is a process of creating tools so that we can intervene if necessary.”

Horvat also said that “a sanitary corridor” was being devised to ensure medical supplies for Croatia.

Meanwhile, the Health Ministry has adopted a decision on mobilisation and work schedule for health institutions and their staff as well as for private health workers within the public health care network.

The decision was prompted by the need to implement public health care measures during the COVID-19 epidemic, Health Minister Vili Beroš said on Sunday.
