Zagreb, Nov 30, 2020 – Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic has tested positive for coronavirus, government spokesman Marko Milic said on Monday evening.
Following recommendations by epidemiologists, the prime minister did another test for coronavirus on Monday and his result is positive, the spokesman said.
Plenkovic was earlier ordered to self-isolate because his wife had tested positive for the novel virus, and now he will have to spend 10 days in isolation.
“The prime minister feels well. He performs his duties from home and will continue to follow instructions from doctors and epidemiologists,” Milic said.
The news comes as Croatia has announced changes to the rules on those entering the country, with travellers coming from a non-green EU zone now required to have a negative PCR test or face self-isolation.
