“Insulting healthcare workers is inappropriate and unacceptable… instead of expressing gratitude to them for their commitment, we can see insults that deserve to be strongly condemned.”
On Tuesday evening, Parliament Speaker Gordan Jandroković also deplored the aggressive behavior of some demonstrators at rallies against COVID certificates and vaccines.
Commenting on the latest COVID numbers in Croatia, PM Plenković said at the cabinet’s meeting that although those numbers were falling, they were still high.
He reiterated his appeal for vaccination against coronavirus.
Pleković recalled that in the last two years, Croatia had implemented some of the easiest epidemiological restrictions in Europe, without long and strict lockdowns and curfews.
We conduct the struggle against the pandemic in the way we consider to be appropriate. Of course, we do not want to encroach on the human rights framework. The precondition for the protection of human rights is that citizens are well and alive, he said.
