ZAGREB, June 18 (Hina) – Health Minister Vili Beros said in Dubrovnik on Thursday that the situation regarding the coronavirus was under control, that Croatia wanted to attract as many tourists as possible but that that entailed certain risks, which was why “there must be no relaxing.”
Beros made the statement in a comment on the latest COVID-19 statistics which show that there have been 11 new cases in the last 24 hours, after a long period during which no or only a small number of new cases were reported on a daily basis.
Beros said that he had spoken with the head of the Croatian Public Health Institute, Krunoslav Capak, and that the situation was under control.
“The new cases who came from abroad are not all tourists, they are Croatian nationals or nationals of neighbouring countries who made short visits to those countries. We have prepared a set of measures to restrict such movement if new cases continue to appear in the coming days,” he stressed.
He called for compliance with the epidemiological measures in force but noted that currently there was no justification for wearing face masks.
