Italy Introduces New Measures for Anyone Returning from Croatia

August 13, 2020 – At an extraordinary meeting on the coronavirus on Wednesday, Italy introduced new measures for travelers returning or in transit from four countries, including Croatia.

24 Sata reports that according to Italian daily newspaper Corriere della Sera, for all those who have been to Croatia, Greece, Spain or Malta in the last 14 days, it is mandatory to have a negative coronavirus test when entering Italy, and only one that is not older than 72 hours is valid. The second option, Corriere reports, is that everyone who returns, but does not have a negative test with them, or has not been tested, must do so in the next 48 hours in Italy.

You can find the official decision by the Italian Health Ministry at this link.

Italians are recording more and more cases of coronavirus infection that are connected to tourist centers, and as Il Fatto Quotidiano reports, Italy has recorded as many as 41 imported cases in the last three days.

This news comes just two days after the Embassy of Finland to Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the Holy See announced that Finland would introduce a mandatory 14-day quarantine and obligatory COVID-19 testing for travelers coming to Finland from Croatia.

Recall, on Wednesday, the National Civil Protection Headquarters of Croatia reported 130 new coronavirus cases, and the number of currently infected (active cases) in Croatia on Wednesday was 686.

There are 117 patients in hospital, of which eight are on a ventilator. There were no fatalities in the last 24 hours.

Since February 25, 2020, when the first case of infection was recorded in Croatia, a total of 5,870 people infected with the new coronavirus have been recorded to date, of whom 160 have died and 5,024 have recovered.

There are currently 2279 people in self-isolation. To date, a total of 132,292 people have been tested, of which 1,604 in the last 24 hours, announced the Headquarters on Wednesday.
