The Minister of Health, Vili Beroš, reported “To date, the total number of patients is 2,317. Currently, there are 71 active patients. In the past 24 hours, we have 18 new patients, one person less than yesterday.”
There are 10 new patients in Zagreb, 1 in the Zagreb County, 1 in the Split-Dalmatia County, 5 in the Osijek-Baranja County and 1 in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. There are no seriously ill people. 9 people are hospitalized and no one is on a ventilator.
Beros added that there are currently around 150,000 tourists throughout Croatia and there aren’t any cases of Covid-19 amongst them.
