Croatia has experienced a true rollercoaster throughout the ongoing public health crisis. It went from being one of the countries to handle the spread of the novel virus, SARS-CoV-2 the best, being praised across Europe and globally, to having some of the worst numbers in relation to the population in just a matter of months.
From being on the ”green lists” of many a country and seeing travel enabled back during a very brief period during the summer months of 2020, to being faced with a multitude of restrictions – Croatia, a country for which tourism is of huge importance, has had a fierce battle on its hands.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the initial German decision was announced by the Robert Koch Institute on its website on Friday last week.
The decision to consider the Republic of Croatia, along with the other three countries, a particularly “high incidence area” until further notice means that in the future, while Croatia remains with that status, all arrivals from Croatia, more specifically all those who enter Germany by land from the Republic of Croatia will have to have what is being described as a ”currently negative coronavirus test,” according to a report from N1.
The exact wording used by the Robert Koch Institute to describe the situation in Armenia, Croatia, Turkey and Ukraine is: “Areas with a particularly high risk of infection due to a particularly high incidence of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.”
