Coronavirus Croatia – Another clear day of Covid-19 cases as Croatia waits for travel partners to catch up

By  Jun 02, 2020

Over the past 24 hours in the Republic of Croatia there have been no new cases of Covid-19, meaning that the total number of people who have contracted the virus since the pandemic began remains at 2,246.

So far, 67,297 people have been tested, of which 602 were tested in the past 24 hours.

There are 17 people in hospital and out of that number 4 patients are on a ventilator.

The total number of people who have recovered has increased by 11 to 2,088. And the total number of people who have passed away is 103.

The Health Minister, Vili Beros, reported on Tuesday that in Croatia the current epidemiological situation as "more than satisfactory".

And commenting on the overall positive situation across Croatia Beros commented, "It did not happen by accident, the National Staff gave faith to the experts and in the synergy of all," emphasizing that the good results were achieved thanks to the citizens, the experts, the politicians, the government and the media.

And there can be no doubt that Croatia has handled the Covid-19 pandemic impressively. Football has returned, cafes and restaurants are open, travel across the country is possible, hairdressers have been working for weeks, the list goes on. Life is almost back to normal, it could be argued that 90 percent back to pre-Covid-19 times, with one of the final pieces of the jigsaw being the hardest to solve, the tourism industry.

Even though Croatia is geographically located near to Italy, the heart of the Covid-19 outbreak in Europe, and has land borders with several other countries it has managed, through ultra-strict measures, discipline and an apolitical approach to be weeks ahead of many more developed countries in the world. And this very fact is now proving a barrier on the road to tourism. In many ways Croatia is waiting for some of its most important travel partners to catch up.
