The Croatian Minister of Health, Vili Beroš, commented on the fact that today the whole of Croatia is now classified in the red zone on the latest European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
Croatia’s move into the European red zone was certainly not unexpected as new case numbers have been steadily growing over the past weeks and the minister gave his opinion on why this has happened on his Twitter account.
"We are in the red. This is partly the result of non-vaccination and non-compliance with epidemiological measures. The way out is as many vaccinated people as possible, which raises the level of protection for everyone!” wrote Minister Beroš on Twitter this morning.
As of September 8, 43.13 percent of the total population and 51.79 percent of the adult population had been vaccinated. On September 8, 6,240 doses of vaccine were consumed, of which 3,499 persons were vaccinated with the first dose.
