The Croatian government on Thursday nominated Dr Alemka Markotic as a member of the European Union's future scientific advisory platform on Covid-19.

Markotic is the head of Zagreb’s Fran Mihaljevic hospital for infectious diseases, a professor at the School of Medicine in Rijeka and a member of the national Covid-19 crisis management team.

The platform will soon be set up at the proposal of European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.

The platform will include a group of respectable doctors and researchers from all EU member states whose task will be to ensure a better, faster and coordinated exchange of scientific data and expert opinions as well as practical experience at the EU level.
