On Thursday, 3,164 new cases were recorded, so the number of people currently in infected in Croatia with Covid-19 is 17,814. Among them, 1,944 patients are in hospital, of which 204 are on ventilators.
"We have been discussing the situation all this week, the decision on the measures has been prepared and it will be discussed at the meeting today. I cannot say what the last measures will be, but they will be more rigorous,” commented the Assistant Minister of the Interior, Damir Trut, on HRT this morning.
He added that “Everything that is now in force only in a more rigorous form is being considered.”
Yesterday Croatia recorded the highest daily death rate from Covid-19 since the pandemic began. But despite the rising number of new Covid-19 cases, and indeed the mortality rate, the government continues to refuse to lockdown the country.
And when asked this morning about schools and universities closing and for online distance learning to be reintroduced Trut answered that the decision would be left to the Ministry of Science and Education.
