For weeks now, Croatia has been recording an upward growth in the number of newly infected, and measures are being introduced locally, depending on the situation in each county. The director of the Croatian Institute of Public Health, Krunoslav Capak, spoke to N1 about the current situation and touched on the problem of citizens refusing the vaccine.
"According to our polls, about 25 percent of Croats stubbornly refuse the vaccine, any vaccination, not just against Covid-19,” commented Capak.
And when asked about the economic situation in the country Capak said that “Nowhere is the economy booming at the moment. Other countries have large reserves because they are richer than Croatia, but our measures are milder and the economy is still functioning. We have not yet considered the measure of closing café bars, but it is on the table. It is possible to go back to the old way, but we consider the situation every day.”
