Leader of the right-wing populist DP party and member of Croatian Parliament, Miroslav Skoro, has tested positive for COVID-19, he said in a Facebook post on Wednesday.
I have developed mild symptoms. I am following doctors' orders and expect a speedy recovery," Skoro said.
He said he has been in self-isolation since October 16 when he attended a meeting of the parliamentary Committee on Home Affairs and National Security and was in contact with Committee member Franko Vidovic (Social Democratic Party) who later turned out to be infected. "In the meantime, this virus has been confirmed in me too," Skoro wrote.
After the Committee meeting, two SDP Committee members and four clerks have been ordered to self-isolate. The meeting was also attended by senior officials from the State Attorney's Office, the Security and Intelligence Agency (SOA) and the police.
