ZAGREB, March 23 (Hina) – Croatia’s COVID-19 crisis management team said on Monday that a ban on travelling from town to town would be imposed as one more restrictive measure aimed at containing the the spread of coronavirus.

The number of patients infected with coronavirus is rising, and these are necessary measures, said Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic who chairs the crisis management team.

He warned that in the event of violations of measures, the authorities would be forced to adopt more rigorous measures.

He said that it was a reflex reaction by some residents of Zagreb who had fled the city on Sunday morning when the Croatian capital had been hit by strong quakes.

Those citizens will be allowed to come back to their homes in Zagreb, Bozinovic said at the regular news conference which the crisis management team has been holding every morning since the outbreak of the epidemic.
