The Mayor of the City of Dubrovnik, Mato Franković, held telephone meetings with the Ambassadors of the United Kingdom, Germany and the Netherlands to the Republic of Croatia. “We don’t stand still and wait for things to happen to us. From the very beginning of the pandemic, we have been very active in communicating with the ambassadors of many countries and informing them about the current situation in Dubrovnik.”Pointed out Franković. Franković: Divide the daily data you send to the European Center for Disease Control COVID 19 by counties or regions Although this seems banal, communication is extremely important. Because communication in this crisis situation is crucial, and on the other hand it says that they are fighting in Dubrovnik, and that is the first precondition for success. All three ambassadors were informed about the initiative of Mayor Franković to divide the numbers of infected in the Republic of Croatia by counties when sending statistics to the European Center for Disease Control, so that the countries, which are emitting tourist markets for Dubrovnik, know the exact number of infected and based on them could report on the fact that Dubrovnik is currently one of the safest European travel destinations. The City of Dubrovnik has proposed to the Civil Protection Headquarters of the Republic of Croatia that the data sent daily be divided by counties, ie, if this is not possible, it is recommended to be divided into five regions. “If European countries start putting us on the list of undesirable countries, there will be a complete breakdown of our primary economic branch – tourism, which most Croatian coastal cities and municipalities, but also our economic entities, cannot survive. Therefore, I ask you to statistically divide Croatia into several regions, and it is up to us, within our regions, to implement all the measures you have recommended with the aim of minimizing the possibility of infection.”, Concluded Mayor Franković addressing the Civil Protection Headquarters of the Republic of Croatia. On that occasion, the Mayor informed the ambassadors about the current situation regarding COVID 19 in the area of the city of Dubrovnik and the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. He also informed the ambassadors about the protocols prepared in case of a major spread of the infection in the area of Dubrovnik. Photo: Ivan Bagić from Pixabay

New Delhi: Ambati Rayudu’s announcement that he would retire from Ranji and focus only on limited-overs cricket raised a few eyebrows. With no white ball cricket scheduled in the Indian domestic season until February, Rayudu will have no preparation for the three ODIs in Australia which will begin from January 11. However, the 33-year-old from Hyderabad is not too fazed and he called the decision to retire as part of managing his workload. Speaking on the sidelines of the launch of the Junior Super Kings inter-school T20 championship 2018, Rayudu said preserving his body was the only thing that featured in his mind when he made the decision to retire from First Class cricket.“I am 33. I have had surgery to my knee in the past. I really wanted to make efficient use of my body in terms of the amount of cricket I play,” Rayudu said. When asked whether lack of preparation was an impediment, Rayudu that white ball cricket and red ball cricket preparation was different. “I mean definitely match practice is important. Anyway red ball cricket and white ball cricket there is a huge amount of difference.
