“There will be additional relaxation of (COVID-19) measures, possibly this week. Some of the restrictions will remain in effect in the social welfare and health sectors, because the epidemic is still here,” the minister said after he formally opened a €3.5 million renovated operating block at Zagreb’s Children’s Hospital.

However, the minister did not specify how the COVID protocols would be further eased.

Package of reform laws for improvement of health sector

The minister announced the first package of laws for overhauling the healthcare system for the second quarter of 2022.

“The relevant laws are to be adopted by the parliament by the end of this year”, he added.

“The reform does not mean a heap of papers or documents, it is a set of activities and measures, including the consolidation of public procurement, shortening of waiting lists, and overhauling the primary healthcare and hospital services”, Beroš said.

Asked by the press whether he would be included in the announced government reshuffle, the minister said that “change is the only constant in life” but, in a comment on media allegations, wondered “where the truth has gone.”
