Germany No Longer Considers Croatia an Epidemiologically High-Risk Country

Pixabay reports that checks have been carried out systematically at all airports since Sunday morning, and individual checks are being carried out at road and rail border crossings.

“Today, we conducted a check of passengers from 17 aircraft that flew in from one of the high-risk countries,” a Federal Police spokesman at Frankfurt Airport said.

Travelers from these countries must present a negative coronavirus test upon arrival in Germany. Despite the negative test, all passengers coming to Germany must spend 10 days in self-isolation.

Before traveling to Germany, all passengers are required to report to the German health authorities online, and carriers are required to check whether passengers have a negative test on hand before traveling.

The Robert Koch State Epidemiological Institute currently treats 25 countries as high-risk.

The high-risk area is a new category that applies to countries where the seven-day incidence exceeds the value of 200.

Among these countries are almost all Southeast European countries, with the exception of Croatia. The list also includes Spain, Portugal, the Czech Republic, and the Baltic countries.

Croatia is still treated as a risk area, which means that travelers from Croatia do not have to present a negative test immediately upon arrival in Germany but must present it within 48 hours after their arrival.

Over the past 24 hours, Croatia registered 352 new COVID-19 cases and 28 related deaths, the Civil Protection Headquarters announced on Sunday.

The number of active cases in Croatia is currently 2,996, including 1,474 COVID-19 patients in hospital, 138 of whom are on ventilators.

Since 25 February 2020, when Croatia registered its first case of the infection, 228,920 people have contracted coronavirus, and 221,097 have recovered, including 560 in the last 24 hours. The COVID-19 death toll is 4,827.

There are currently 15,729 people in self-isolation.

To date, 1,154,033 people have been tested, 4,342 of whom in the last 24 hours.
