ZAGREB, June 22, 2020 – Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic was not in contact with the infected tennis players at the Adria Tours in Zadar, government spokesman Marko Milic said on Monday, adding that given the situation with the spread of the disease the prime minister would undergo a test for COVID-19 today.

“Prime Minister Plenkovic attended the tournament in Zadar and spent about 45 minutes there but he did not have any contact with Grigor Dimitrov or Borna Coric,” Milic said.

He added that during his visit to the tournament, Plenkovic spoke briefly with Novak Djokovic and Goran Ivanisevic, and then greeted Marin Cilic in passing without shaking hands or having any close contact.

“Even though he did not have any contact with the infected players, given the situation with the spread of the virus in Zadar, the prime minister will undergo a test for COVID-19 today,” said Milic.

A total of 22 participants, including tennis players and their teams, were tested for the virus on Sunday night after Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov was diagnosed with the novel COVID-19 coronavirus. The results have shown three positive cases, including Borna Coric, the organisers of the Adria Tour announced on Monday morning.

In addition to Coric, who played against Dimitrov, Marco Panichi, Djokovic’s fitness trainer, and Christian Groh, Dimitrov’s trainer, tested positive.

Zadar Mayor Branko Dukic has gone into self-isolation after coming into contact with participants at the tournament, his office said on Monday.
