Croatia remains an epidemiologically safe destination for Slovenians, the Slovenian government spokesman, Jelko Kacin, and one of the leading infectologists confirmed on Tuesday, explaining that the situation in both countries is similar.
Speaking at an extraordinary press conference on Tuesday about 13 new cases of coronavirus in Slovenia, including 6 cases of transmission from abroad, Kacin said that the statement of Health Minister, Tomaz Gantar, about Croatia as a potentially epidemiologically dangerous destination for Slovenians was " insufficiently thought out” since the epidemiological situation in both states is similar.
Due to that statement and Gantar's warning that Croatia could be on the "red list" of countries from which a 14-day quarantine is required for entry into Slovenia, the Slovenian government has been overwhelmed with inquiries, which has resulted in problems with telephone lines.
This means that despite the increase in the number of new cases in recent days in Croatia, but also in Slovenia, the border crossing regime remains the same as before.
Of the 13 new infections confirmed in Slovenia in the last 24 hours, six of them are "imported", of which three from BiH, and one case each from Serbia, Kosovo and Croatia.
