ZAGREB, June 23 (Hina) – Interior Minister and head on the national coronavirus crisis management team Davor Bozinovic on Tuesday announced a new border regime with Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia that could include 14 days of compulsory self-isolation.
“We are monitoring the epidemiological situation in neighbouring countries and the thing that we have noticed in the past few days is that the infections are being brought by people who are coming for the most part from our eastern neighbourhood,” Bozinovic told reporters in Zapresic presenting the Croatian Democratic Union slate for the 1st electoral constituency.
He underlined that the national coronavirus crisis management team would meet on Wednesday and probably change the current regime at border crossings with Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro as well as the regime concerning citizens of Kosovo and North Macedonia.
“We will make a decision tomorrow. You know that they enter into force at midnight the next day, but I would not speculate. We will probably revert to the regime that existed before and that means self-isolation for anyone coming from those countries,” said Bozinovic.
He mentioned the case of a Croatian embassy employee in Belgrade who has been infected with the coronavirus, saying that he did not think the embassy would be closed, although he did not have any concrete information in that regard.
