July 23, 2020 – The Croatian Institute of Public Health announced new recommendations for holding concerts in Croatia. reports that the recommendations state that a person who has been abroad for the last 14 days and does not have a negative corona test taken in the last 48 hours must not participate in the gatherings.

The stage and performers must be four meters away from the audience. A distance of two meters between singers and musicians with wind instruments is also recommended.

The maximum number of people allowed to be at a concert or event is also limited, which is 500 people indoors and 1,000 people outdoors.

The Croatian Public Health Institute recommends that there be only seats, but in case of need for standing seats, it is recommended to set up standing tables, with a distance of one and a half meters. There may be a maximum of 100 standing places.

At all events, a 1.5-meter distance between people is recommended.

Recall, two men died at the Osijek Clinical Hospital on Wednesday, born in 1946 and 1945, bringing the number of coronavirus fatalities in Croatia to 125 since the beginning of the epidemic. There are 143 people in hospital and nine on a ventilator, and the average age of the patients is 47.1 years.

The director of the Croatian Institute of Public Health (HZJZ), Krunoslav Capak, pointed out on Monday that there were no new hotspots, and that 40 patients were from Vukovar-Srijem County.

“Most of these cases are related to one wedding and several larger gatherings that took place in the last few days,” he said, adding that there are a slightly higher number of new cases in Istria, 19, but half are contacts of previously ill people.

One tourist was also infected, but the share of tourists in the total number of patients is minor, in contrast to large weddings where 234 people became infected, which is more than 10 percent of the total number of patients in the last month.

Another 134 of them are associated with other types of larger gatherings, such as confirmations, first communions, and the like. More than 100 cases have been linked to nightclubs in the past month.
