Touring the earthquake-hit communities of Sisak-Moslavina County, Medved said that some people whose houses were damaged had good reason to refuse to leave their homes.

“We will find a way to protect them and provide them with accommodation. According to preliminary estimates, around 1,000 containers are necessary in Sisak-Moslavina as well as parts of Zagreb and Karlovac counties,” he said.

He said some of the containers would be put next to the houses that were damaged or destroyed while some would be formed into settlements in the immediate vicinity of people’s homes where that was possible.

Medved noted that some 20 containers previously allocated to hospitals for the fight against coronavirus were being relocated to the quake-hit area.

A reporter remarked that media were being contacted by people who lacked information on whether they should start renovating their homes or protect them and who were being referred to a phone number where nobody was answering their calls.

Medved said that the necessary phone numbers would be available today and called on media to share with the task force any information on earthquake victims in need of help so it could respond.

Great efforts made to reach all people hit by earthquake

Asked if all people hit by the earthquake had been reached, he said that he could not say that with 100% certainty but that great efforts had been made and that rescue teams were continuing to visit the whole area, and he once again called for sharing information on families that still had not been reached.
