As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 27th of February, 2020, Croatian PM Plenkovic claimed that Croatia has recognised the gravity of the coronavirus situation on time and has told residents of Croatia to carry on living as normal.
Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said on Thursday that the public health situation surrounding the current coronavirus outbreak is under control because Croatia has recognised the situation and its severity on time, again urging citizens to live normally and be calm and responsible. This ”keep calm and carry on” style message was followed by an expression of the Croatian Government’s desire to minimise negative consequences as much as possible.
“Three cases [of coronavirus in Croatia] have now been confirmed, but the public health situation is under control. I’d like to appeal to my fellow citizens and let them know that there is no reason for buying any extra supplies, going shopping to such an extent that groceries disappear from the shelves. Live your lives normally, all the services that need to operate will continue to operate, so please just be calm and responsible,” said Plenkovic from the latest Government session.
He emphasised that the Croatian Government’s goal is to ensure the health security of people in Croatia, emphasising that the National Civil Protection Headquarters coordinates all activities and that they will continue to meet and report on things daily.
PM Plenkovic said that Croatia has recognised the coronavirus situation on time, and now the most important tasks will be in the hands of the health care institutions and their staff, but also for other services, too.
“We, with particular emphasis on the economic sectors, will take care to keep in mind how to deal with the unpredictable effects of circumstances such as external shock. Our goal is to minimise any negative consequences. We will be being careful,” the Prime Minister Plenkovic said.
