Speaking at a cabinet meeting, he said Croatia was sixth in the EU in terms of lowest weekly incidence of new coronavirus cases and eighth in terms of lowest weekly COVID mortality, and that it had the lowest weekly incidence in Central and Mediterranean Europe.

Plenković said the quite high increases in Italy, Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia should lead to greater caution in Croatia given that restrictions had been relaxed. “Now it’s very important that greater individual responsibility follow the new context of the social life.”

There is an increase of new infections in the coastal counties. The common intention is to ensure the tourist season, so it’s important that people remain alert and adhere to the recommendations and measures so that we can stabilise the trend we had and see how to restore all economic activities, he added.

Plenković went on to say that a meeting was held yesterday with representatives of the Women’s Room and that it was agreed to draft a national strategy preventing sexual violence. The document will be sponsored by the Ministry of Labour, Pension System, Family and Social Policy, with the participation of other departments.

He announced that as part of amendments to the Criminal Code, sexual harassment will be prosecuted ex-officio.
