Germany put Croatia's Istria and Bjelovar-Bilogora counties on the list of regions with high risk of infection with the coronavirus on Thursday, so that now the whole of Croatia is on the red list.

The Robert Koch Institute declared the last two Croatian regions that were not included on the list a risk area because of a growing number of new infections.

The decision comes into force on Saturday, 3 April and means that anyone entering Germany from Croatia must present a negative coronavirus test within 48 hours of entering and stay in quarantine for ten days. It will be possible to break self-isolation after five days with a new negative test.

Along with the Spanish Balearic islands, Istria was one of the few travel destinations for Germans that was not listed as a risk area.
