In Croatia, epidemiological activities will be extended for another two weeks: public meetings, attendance at events, entry and employment in the public sector will be restricted, and the mask will be worn indoors, Interior Minister Tver Posinovic said.
He stressed that due to the new version of the corona virus known as Omigron from South Africa, its order banning entry from the South African region and Hong Kong will be extended until December 31. However, the head of the ministry added that Hong Kong had been removed from the list. In Croatia, the number of victims of the new strain has risen to eight.
Meanwhile, the 151-member Croatian parliament (camp) – after a heated debate – passed a bill with 27 to 77 votes, with state agencies and responsible agencies, government agencies and municipalities not following the epidemiological measures. Opposition parties have stated they will not run in the by-elections, but will use a two-thirds majority. During the vote, hundreds of people protested in front of the camp building, which was guarded by police.
In early November, the government made corona virus protection certification mandatory in the public sector, And one month in advance in the health and social security system to prevent the spread of infection. Those who have not been vaccinated and those who are not infected should be tested twice a week.
In Croatia, more than four million, 4671 new corona virus infections have been identified in the last 24 hours, and 57 people have died from the virus-causing Govt-19 disease. The hospital maintains 2,232 patients, 306 of whom are on ventilators. To date, 2,232,429 people in the country have been vaccinated, of whom 2,055,300 have already received the second dose.
