Croatian Prime Minister Plenkovic and Health Minister Beros addressed the public following a cabinet meeting.
“I can now confirm to you that there are two positive patients at KB Dubrava. The situation will continue to be kept under control. We have plans where we envisaged KB Dubrava to be the main centre. It’s good that what happened at KB Dubrava has now accelerated our plans, even though we do have another centre,” the minister said.

The Minister added that the level of defense would be raised to a higher level and that we are now on the threshold of that.
“We will adapt the system. The enemy is small and invisible, but I believe we’re going to find an answer to it,” the minister added.
