Germany Eyeing Three More Potential Croatian Red List Counties
Going from one of the countries in Europe with the best epidemiological picture to quite the opposite with the arrival of the summer tourist season, Croatia’s situation with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has become much more serious in a relatively short period of time. As such, numerous European countries have placed either Croatia as a whole on their respective red lists, or, in Germany’s case, declared certain counties no go areas.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 5th of September, 2020, if the number of newly infected people in these counties continues to grow, they could easily be declared risky, according to reports from the German media.
So far, Germany is the only country to have created Croatian red list counties as opposed to simply placing the entire country on its red list and causing enormous issues for travel. The Dalmatian regions of Sibenik-Knin, Split-Dalmatia and Zadar counties have now all been declared risk areas, but these might not be the only Croatian red list counties we’re going to see.
Germany’s Federal Office for Foreign Affairs notes on its official website in its epidemiological report for Croatia that the number of infections has recently risen sharply in Pozega-Slavonia, Dubrovnik-Neretva County and the capital, Zagreb, Fenix magazine reports.
This remark doesn’t yet constitute a warning against travel for German nationals and other residents of Germany, but these areas are currently being specifically monitored. If the number of newly infected people in these counties continues to grow, they could easily find themselves on the same list as the aforementioned three Dalmatian areas, write the German media.
