“It’s neither under discussion nor consideration,” Bačić said in response to reporters’ questions if the authorities are considering doing away with COVID certificates.
He recalled that the current epidemiological situation, including a rate of only 67% of fully vaccinated persons and the current incidence rate, were not conducive to plans to ease the restrictions.
Since the introduction of the COVID certificate mandate in the public sector, approximately 120,000 asymptomatic citizens have been diagnosed with coronavirus.
He said that vaccination rates in the countries that are now thinking of scrapping COVID passes are much higher than in Croatia.
There is no country in Europe that has completely done away with COVID certificates, he said.
