Croatian lawmakers meet at the hotel after an earthquake damage

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) – Croatian lawmakers held a meeting in a conference room of a hotel in Zagreb on Tuesday, which was separated as part of measures to curb the spread of the new corona virus.

Legislators were forced to find a new meeting place after the parliament building was recently damaged in an earthquake.

State-run HRT television said they had met at the headquarters of Croatian oil company INA in the past few days, but given the anti-virus restrictions, the space there was not large enough to house all 151 legislators.

Tuesday’s session should vote on a number of bills.

Last month’s magnitude 5.5 earthquake killed a 15-year-old girl and injured nearly 30 people when partially blocked against the new corona virus.

The earthquake damaged numerous buildings in the old town of Zagreb.

Croatia, a country of 4.2 million people, has confirmed 1,282 cases of COVID-19 and 18 people have died.
