As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, in addition to information on the current situation related to the spread of the ongoing coronavirus and earthquake, the agenda of a recent government session also includes the decision on the distribution of the donations of funds paid into the Croatian state budget in the action called “Assistance for reconstruction after the earthquake”, which you can read more about here.

At the beginning of the recent government session, Prime Minister Plenkovic, as as become usual, summarised everything that had been taken up until that point.

“Our [coronavirus] numbers have been falling for ten weeks now. When compared to last Thursday, we’ve unfortunately had an increase,” he said.

”Whether this is down to the cold weather, the easing up of our anti-epidemic measures, or some wider easing, we must continue to maintain a great level of caution. Along with Denmark, we are the country with the lowest incidence in the entire EU,” said Prime Minister Plenkovic in the introduction.

“After a series of consultations with all departments, the intention is to enable the operation of catering ans hospiality facilities on their terraces and in their open spaces from March the 1st with the prescribed epidemiological measures implied,” said Prime Minister Plenkovic, adding that indoor sports activities will also be enabled.

He also spoke about extending economic assistance to Croatia’s enfeebled enterprises, which he says will be discussed in more detail.

”We mustn’t be overly relaxed. If the situation gets worse again, more restrictive measures can always be taken,” he concluded.
