She told her fellow citizens not to travel to Croatia unless they had to.

"If someone really has to go, let him go, but I will definitely stay at home and I beg those who don't have to go to Croatia not to travel there until the end of the year," she said, adding that she thinks it is risky to travel abroad because the virus can enter the Czech Republic again.

"Don't have to go somewhere on a trek to South America this year."

"The point is that someone can re-enter the virus from some of the destinations where the virus is still active. However, I believe it will soon be history as well," she said.
