The whole of Croatia has turned red on the new coronavirus map released by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) on Thursday. For several weeks in a row, the situation in Croatia has been changing for the worse and the red ranking was unfortunately expected.
On last week's map, eastern and central Croatia were in red, but Zagreb, coastal counties and northern Croatia remained in orange. The transition of the whole of Croatia to red was expected as the number of infected people has increased significantly in the last week.
The ECDC Epidemiological Map for Europe is published each week based on the 14-day incidence and the proportion of positive tests in the total number tested.
The ECDC map is advisory, but some Member States rely on it when introducing epidemiological restrictions upon return to the country.
