The decision applies to entities engaged in the registered activity of production and trade in the territory of Croatia.

In accordance with the Exceptional Price Control Act, the highest price is considered to be the price of a product as of January 30 this year, when the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus a public health threat of international importance.

As of today Croatia has 49 cases.
