"We are thinking intensively and seriously about banning weddings in the Republic of Croatia, because the latest positive figures for Covid-19 clearly show that a large number of positive ones come from such family celebrations and gatherings. When Covid-19 started spreading in nightclubs, we did not close them, but we have strengthened the controls in them and that has brought good results," commented the Croatian Minister of Health, Vili Beros, to Slobodna Dalmacija.
This information announced by the Minister in the light of the latest figures and coronavirus infections coming from Split, which say that 12 people have been infected with coronavirus at a recent wedding in Split. The new cases of Covid-19 in Split directly connected to this wedding include bride, three musicians and one photographer.
The wedding party was held about ten days ago in Split, in a closed space of one of Split's restaurants. Also among the infected is an employee of the Teaching Institute for Public Health (Hygiene), who was also at the wedding and in contact with people who were already infected without even knowing it.
