Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic said on Thursday that the authorities were preparing additional beds in makeshift facilities for the treatment of Covid-19 patients, following a surge in the number of daily cases of the coronavirus infection.

For this purpose, Zagreb’s Arena Centre, Split’s Spaladium hall, Rijeka’s Dvorana Mladosti venue as well as similar locations in Varazdin and Osijek have been selected for installing a total of 2,360 beds, if necessary.

Bozinovic informed the government that those capacities could be prepared to take in Covid-19 patients within 48 hours.

He also called on the Croatians to avoid all the uneccesary contacts so as to help efforts to curb the infection.
