ZAGREB, November 15, 2020 – Head of Zagreb’s Fran Mihaljevic hospital for infectious diseases, Alemka Markotic, has reported on the first meeting of the EU scientific advice platform, which was held on Friday.
It was aggred that EU member states would exchange information on the pandemic and that the main focus would be on testing and reaching a consensus on the duration of quarantine and isolation, as well as on preparations for vaccination.
It was also agreed that they would exchange their experience with validating rapid antigen tests so that different EU countries would not validate the same tests.
“So far, there have been different experiences with those tests,” Markotic said.
Next Friday, on November 20, another meeting of the EU platform will take place, and in the next two to three weeks a common position on testing should be established.
