Croatia among the worst in Europe rise in new Covid-19 numbers

By  Nov 27, 2020

"Adherence to all measures and instructions adopted so far is of key importance because responsible behaviour can reduce the spread of coronavirus infection. Everyone must be aware of the responsibility for their own health, the health of their families and fellow citizens,” commented the Civil Protection Headquarters at today’s press conference.

In the last 24 hours, 4,080 new cases of Covid-19 virus infection were recorded, and the number of active cases in Croatia today is a total of 22,408.

“Last week, we had a 15 percent increase in the weekly figure, the week before it was seven percent, and the week before it was four percent. Our current incidence is on the 24th place in the list of European countries, so only three countries have a higher incidence than us. These are Slovenia, Austria and Luxembourg. Everyone else has a lower incidence,” commented Krunoslav Capak.

In terms of mortality, we are in 12th place in the list of European Union countries.

"If we have a downward trend in the numbers of new patients and newly hospitalized, then we can talk about some easing of measures," Capak said.
