ZAGREB, Dec 16 (Hina) -Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic did not say on Wednesday whether there would be closures between municipalities and counties, but he announced that a framework of anti-COVID measures would be more precisely hammered out by the end of the week.
“We will know more about measures on Friday,” he said, underscoring that all measures are aimed at reducing contacts.
He added that the epidemic would pass, but not tomorrow, and that vaccination would start and last for most of next year.
He stressed that it was “far too early” to relax.
“This is why we are not yet in a situation to think about relaxing or, I hope, tightening the measures,” Bozinovic said.
He said that the extensions of the decision that expires on December 21 were being discussed.
“At the moment I cannot talks about any concrete measures,” he said, calling on citizens to refrain from gathering, travel and visits.
Asked to comment on the request by some archdioceses to be exempt from the rule allowing only up to 25 to gather, Bozinovic said that representatives of the national response team and the Croatian Bishops’ Conference were communicating at various levels and that they would inform the public on that as soon as the talks are done.
