Croatia has just been ”painted” red on the latest update of the ECDC coronavirus map, and while the tourist season has gone remarkably well and the country continues to record excellent numbers as we head into the post-season and then into autumn, some believe an extension of the current measures, at the very least, should occur.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic said that, as things stand now, next week the National Civil Protection Directorate will mainly go in the direction of the extension of the country’s existing measures, emphasising that the best weapon against serious clinical pictures, hospitalisations and deaths is to take one of the several available coronavirus vaccines. Being vaccinated with any of them has been proven to be very effective in protecting people against more serious forms of the disease.
“As the autumn months approach, people will typically be spending much more time indoors and that’s why it is important to follow the basic anti-epidemic measures and recommendations of the Croatian Institute of Public Health,” said Minister Davor Bozinovic.
He also presented the data from the supervision of the implementation of anti-epidemic measures over the past week, during which inspectors conducted a total of 15,597 inspections. They issued two written warnings, eight notices of violations, nine oral rulings, eight indictments, and three fines for those violating the measures.
