As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, level 4 or high-risk countries are those that have had more than 500 cases of COVID-19 reported per 10,000 inhabitants over the last 28 days, according to the CDC.
“Avoid travelling to these destinations. If you do have to travel to these destinations, you should be fully vaccinated before travelling,” advises the CDC, and this message now applies to travel to Croatia, which has seen a dramatic increase in infection cases over the last few days.
As many as 77 countries are on the CDC’s list of high-risk countries due to their respective epidemiological situations, and Croatia has now unfortunately joined them, as reported by N1.
The CDC does not recommend that people travel to Croatia, and they point out that due to the current epidemiological picture here, even vaccinated people are at risk of infection and spreading the now numerous active new coronavirus variants.
Other popular tourist destinations on the list of high-risk countries are Jamaica, Turkey and Thailand, and among the European nations; Austria, Greece, Ireland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

In addition, the CDC doesn’t recommend international travel for unvaccinated people whatsoever, CNN reports. Travellers who are fully vaccinated are less likely to become infected and spread the virus further, but international travel still poses a risk to all, according to the CDC.
