"We discussed all aspects," the minister said, adding that it is understandable that everyone should do everything they can to protect the health system, especially hospitals, reports Jutarnji list.
He pointed out that the demands for stricter measures don’t mean going in the direction of a lockdown or curfew, which was also echoed by Prime Minister, Andrej Plenković, after the meeting of the Scientific Council in the Government.
"Any stricter measures would go to further to reduce the number of people in gatherings," the minister said.
"The conclusion is - the headquarters does not take measures only on the basis of information from the health profession, but also from economic activities," he said, adding that a balance needs to be found.
The Minister says that we have been successful so far, but the number of infected and hospitalized is growing.
"The conclusion is that, if the epidemiological situation does not improve, we will introduce stricter measures that will refer to limiting some larger gatherings and similar activities, and not in terms of curfew or total lockdown."
