Influence of the Coronavirus Pandemic on Execution of Tasks by the Coast Guard of the Republic of Croatia

ABSTRACT: COVID-19 Pandemic, or better known as Coronavirus pandemic, is a current new disease of respiratory ways, and adjustment to life and work in the pandemic conditions is a challenge all organisations in the world, including military ones, have to face with. This paper analyses the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic on the intensity and implementation of surveillance and protection of national interests of the Republic of Croatia within the jurisdiction of the Coast Guard of the Republic of Croatia. A special attention is dedicated to determining how capable the Coast Guard of the Republic of Croatia is in executing all tasks in the pandemic circumstances. The analysis is carried out by comparing selected activities the Coast Guard of the Republic of Croatia carried out in 2020 with activities carried out in the period from 2015 to 2019. In the analysis of the effects which the COVID-9 pandemic had on the intensity and implementation of surveillance and protection of national interests of the Republic of Croatia within the jurisdiction of the Coast Guard, the following performed activities were observed: number of airplane flights, airplane fuel consumption, number of flight hours, number of engaged vessels, number of nautical miles sailed by vessels, number of registered vessel engine working hours, vessel fuel consumption, number of issued mandatory misdemeanour warrants. This paper has a goal to prove that the Coast Guard of the Republic of Croatia, having adjusted to a great extent to new operational circumstances, carries out all its tasks, and this can be best seen through a number of issued misdemeanour warrants, which means that the pandemic didn’t have a decisive negative impact on the work of the Coast Guard of the Republic of Croatia.
