The National Civil Protection Headquarters published new data on the number of people infected with Covid-19 in Croatia in the last 24 hours.
The number of new cases in 24 hours is 92, which means that the total number of people who have contracted the virus in the Republic of Croatia since the pandemic began is 3,953. From that total there are 1,204 active cases, and 2,639 people have made a full recovery.
So far, 97,724 people have been tested, of which 1,804 were tested in the last 24 hours. There are currently 132 people in hospital and five patients are on a ventilator.
“Today the number is higher than yesterday, but there are no new hotspots, everything is related to already known situations: gatherings, weddings, an event in Đakovo. The only slightly higher number is in the Karlovac County, and all cases are related to one family where most members became infected,” said Krunoslav Capak, the Director of the Croatian Institute of Public Health.
Asked whether the schools would open in the fall or continue with online classes, Capak replied, “It's too early to talk about it. We have in mind this situation, the summer will pass quickly and at the beginning of September we will have to make that decision and it depends on what the situation will be like. From the experiences of other countries that have opened schools we can say that nothing bad has happened.”
Damir Trut, the Assistant Minister of the Interior for Civil Protection, announced the obligation to wear the mask in some other places, “A decision was made to supplement the decision on the necessary measure of mandatory use of a face mask. The decision added that masks must be worn by employees of companies, institutions and institutions that work with clients, and clients who come there. Also employees of service industries who come into close contact with customers. The decision takes effect today.”
