August 29, 2020 – A total of 13 countries have introduced specific mandatory restrictions for travel from Croatia, and three more – the Netherlands, Finland, and Denmark – have put Croatia on the orange list.

Slobodna Dalmacija reports that Slovakia is the newest European country to include Croatia on the red list. From September 2, everyone who wants to enter that country will have to self-isolate. Apart from Croatia, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Malta, and Belgium will also be on that list from the same date.

These are countries that have recorded many new coronavirus cases in the last 14 days: Croatia, which on Thursday reached an average of 80.7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last two weeks, ranked in the high fifth place of the worst countries.

In front of Croatia are Spain, Malta, Luxembourg, and Romania.

Thus, everyone that was in Croatia and wants to enter Slovakia will have to undergo a 10-day quarantine. Slovakia, on the other hand, recorded 16.3 patients per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days, cumulatively, as of August 27.

Several states have set a limit on the cumulative number of patients in 14 days per 100,000 inhabitants, after which they will set restrictions on return from individual states. For example, Slovenia set that limit at 40 and introduced restrictions on the day Croatia crossed it.

And the growth of the cumulative number in Croatia was rapid: on Thursday, it exceeded 80, and on Assumption Day, August 15, it was less than 30.

A total of 13 countries have introduced certain mandatory restrictions for Croatia, and three more – the Netherlands, Finland, and Denmark – have put Croatia on the orange list, which means that recommendations have been issued not to travel to Croatia and to carry out quarantine, but it is not mandatory. 

The director of the CNIPH, Krunoslav Capak, said that Croatia was still mostly green.

“We have a high incidence, and it is expected that some countries will take some measures against us. However, I must say that most of Europe are still green towards us, and Croatian citizens can still travel to most European countries. We hope that now that the tourist season is waning, we will be able to reduce and improve our indicators, based on which they will then remove us from the red and orange lists,” said the main state epidemiologist Capak. On Friday, Croatia came to 2560 active cases.

Among them, 212 patients are in hospital, of which 11 are on a ventilator. On Friday, in the past 24 hours, 2,065 people were tested. There are currently 8,770 people in self-isolation.
