Speaking for Croatian Radio, he said that despite the fact that people were shocked and forgot about epidemiological measures initially, there had been no surge in infections.

“The area is epidemiologically safe and fully under control. We have neither water poisoning nor food poisoning either.”

Brkić said the obligation to boil water due to possible damage to pipes, despite findings that it was potable, would remain in force until the aftershocks stopped and the supply and sewer systems were repaired.

Speaking of coronavirus vaccination, he said 6,000 doses had been administered in the county, including 1,000 given as second shots.

Brkić said that after the initial shock, people in the country resumed adhering to the epidemiological measures.

Education ministry secretary Tomislav Paljak said all schools in the county had been inspected and that 24 sustained no damage in the earthquake, 11 were given the green label, 12 were temporarily unusable and nine were totally destroyed.

He said over 2,100 pupils had been relocated but that this did not mean they had left the area, while several dozen said they had moved out.
