Written by  Jul 21, 2021

The number of newly infected people in Croatia has been growing in recent days. Thus, 191 new cases of infection were recorded today, and one person died.

The head of the National Staff and Minister of the Interior, Davor Božinović, revealed to that new measures are being introduced that will refer to the Adriatic region. This is a region that on the European Centre for Disease Control is ranked as orange.

“The numbers are growing and we need to do something to at least prevent some events from turning into super-spreaders,” he said. The measures should take effect on Monday, he explained. EU digital Covid certification will be the criterion. "I'm sure if this is respected, we can safely continue with the summer, but under control," he said.

“All those rallies of more than 50 to 1,000 people will have to be organized so that local headquarters together with the county headquarters take over for their organization,” he explained.

Weddings also have their own framework. Weddings will be allowed for a maximum of 200 to 300 people maximum, the minister said.

Sports competitions will also be available for those who have a Covid certificate.

“As for the vaccine, it is a guarantee for a person that they should not and most likely will not experience some more severe form of the disease, and certainly not a fatal outcome,” he explained.

The new measures, which are valid from Monday, are intended for the Adriatic region - from Istria all the way to Dubrovnik.
