Written by  Mar 21, 2020

Croatian Health Minister, Vili Beros, confirmed at a press conference this morning that the number of coronavirus cases in Croatia has risen dramatically to 168. And overnight Dubrovnik has jumped from 2 cases of coronavirus to 12.

"The situation is still under control; it is also good that we have information about persons and their movements. It is bad that individuals do not follow the rules on self-isolation and the instructions given by the headquarters. I demand that everyone obey the instructions we have given!" the minister urged.

Minister Davor Bozinovic said that obviously the main problem today is the adherence to the instructions of the medical advice and experts. “If there were no awareness and conscience there would be no need for more drastic measures. Therefore, we will make more restrictive decisions that will have to be implemented. The police will keep an eye on how they are implemented and reacted. Our lives will change more and move indoors,” added Minister Bozinovic.

He also said that inter-city lines for trains and buses have been discontinued from today, bus and railway stations are being closed.

Dr. Alemka Markotic, head of the Infectious Diseases Clinic, Dr. Fran Mihaljevic, said that "this is not a movie but reality."

The highest number of patients is in Zagreb, where 60 cases of infection have been identified. This is followed by the County of Istria with 16 and Primorje-Gorski kotar with 13 confirmed cases.
