The deteriorated situation in schools in Dubrovnik-Neretva County is due to private gatherings, as determined by epidemiologists, Fuchs said ahead of a meeting of the inner cabinet on Wednesday, noting that he hoped the situation would not further escalate there.

He noted that the ministry had planned to start relaxing restrictions at universities but that due to the latest increase in the number of new infections, that plan would be delayed for a while.

Speaking of the reconstruction of Zagreb schools, damaged in last year’s earthquake, he said that he hoped it would start as soon as possible.

He recalled that the city administration was in charge of the reconstruction of schools and that the ministry was coordinating the reconstruction of institutions of higher education and institutes.

It has been agreed that the buildings should be reconstructed in such a way to make them more resilient to earthquakes, he said, noting that restoring the buildings to the state they were in before the earthquake will be financed from one type of funds while additional works will be financed from another.

The process will not be fast, he said, noting that preparation of the necessary documentation would take at least a year.
