Krunoslav Capak said that he is satisfied with the current epidemiological situation.

"The epidemiological situation is excellent, for a number of days we have had no new cases of infection. Currently we have 48 active coronavirus cases. 103 people are in self-isolation. What is interesting is that we had more than 200 medical staff that were positive, meaning nurses and doctors. At this moment there are no active cases among medical staff, we only have one in self isolation,” said Capak.

Capak noted that we are ready for an eventual second wave and was asked it could be overcome without shutting down business and closing schools.

“Naturally, I have spoken about this several times. Now when we know much more about the virus and when we know much more about how it spreads, we can achieve good results with segmental closing measures, and if a second wave arrives, which we have said many times is likely, we will know how to handle it and lower the number of new cases with segmental closing measures,” said Capak.
