Croatia introduces health surveillance for travelers coming from northern Italian regions

By  Feb 24, 2020

Croatia has introduced health surveillance for all travelers coming from the northern Italian regions, raising the level of preparedness for the risk of coronavirus - Vecernji List writes.

The measures are even stricter for people coming or having recently been in contact with any of the Italian regions affected by the coronavirus, who will go to quarantine in Croatia. According to the Minister of Health Vili Beros, he asked all county centers where they could organize quarantines. For example in Rijeka, a quarantine will be formed in the Red Cross, and it is precisely this city that is under criticism for organizing an international carnival attended by a number of Italian citizens.

Minister Beros reminded that the situation in Italy has escalated after potential visitors were already in Rijeka because most of them came there on Friday.

Quarantine is also being prepared in Zadar. Romania has introduced the same measures. The Croatian crisis headquarters for the coronavirus has a new meeting this morning.

Passengers arriving from a coronavirus focus or who have recently stayed or contacted persons in the area will be examined at the border and given a medical surveillance solution if they do not have symptoms. Each day of their stay in the Republic of Croatia, they must inform the competent epidemiologist that their health status is known, so that it can be known advance if they have developed any symptoms. In that case, they will be tested for coronavirus – Vecernji list reports.
