Capak: Lockdown and Curfew in Neighbouring Countries without Effect

Total Croatia News


ZAGREB, Nov 4, 2020 – Head of the Croatian Institute of Public Health Krunoslav Capak on Wednesday said that more stringent epidemiological measures, like a lockdown or a curfew that have been introduced in neighbouring countries, have proved to be ineffective and that the current measures in Croatia are good.

“We think that our measures are good. We appeal to citizens to adhere to them and if they do, we are certain that we will curb these numbers,” Capak told reporters.

Despite doctors calling for more stringent measures, Capak claimed that the curfews and lockdowns that have been introduced in other EU countries are not bringing any results one week after they were introduced as the numbers in those countries are continuing to grow.

“We think that those measures are not effective,” he underlined.

Six doctors’ associations today called on the government to urgently introduce more stringent epidemiological measures, otherwise the health system could collapse, seeing that hospitals are already at the “breaking point.”

Capak claimed that the problem of a possible lack of equipment or shortage of staff can be resolved with redistribution to those areas where they are more needed.

“We have a sufficient number of ventilators, there are more than 70,000 people working in the health system. I am certain that we will protect the health of our citizens,” said Capak.
