Today at the crisis headquarters a meeting to discuss a further response to the pandemic was held and the Minister of Health Vili Beroš reported at the Government session on the latest data on coronavirus infections.
"In Croatia, 3,053 new cases were recorded today, which is 28.24 percent of the number tested. There are 939 people in hospitals and 131 people on ventilators. As we announced, today is the meeting of the crisis headquarters, we will discuss a further response to the pandemic," said Health Minister Vili Beros.
He added that "An increase of new cases of 56 percent compared to last Wednesday is a call for an additional much-needed dose of caution," he said.
He also warned of the danger of "twindemia", i.e. a joining of the coronavirus and flu. So far, 140 cases of influenza have been recorded in Croatia, which arrived earlier this year than usual.
