ZAGREB, March 19 (Croatia Sun News) – Asylum seekers in Croatia are not infected with the coronavirus, the Croatian Interior Ministry stated in a new press release, adding that all asylum seekers at the reception centres in Zageb and Kutina were under constant medical observation.
“They did not arrive now at the time of tightened border controls from the high risk countries. They have been warned about the outbreak of the disease and measures that need to be taken to prevent its further spreading,” the ministry said.
Flyers have been displayed in the reception centres containing instructions from the Croatian Public Health Institute about the importance of prevention and self-isolation.
Access to the reception centres has been temporarily restricted for all persons whose presence is not absolutely necessary for the functioning of the facilities, the ministry said.
