The Dubrovnik-Neretva County saw over the past 24-hour period the highest number of new cases of Covid-19 since the pandemic began with 70 recorded cases. The director of the Dubrovnik general Hospital, Marijo Bekić, discussed the situation in Dubrovnik on RTL.

On Tuesday, the Dubrovnik-Neretva County broke the record for the number of new Covid-19 cases. “That's the data for the last 24 hours. Yesterday we tested the most people so far, 230 people. Of that, 70 were positive, compared to last week when that number of tests was around 150-160. This means that one third of the total number tested were posiitve, which shows that the virus has spread quite a bit through the population," explained Bekić.

He added that “At the moment, we have 22 hospitalized patients at the Dubrovnik General Hospital, three of whom are in the intensive care unit, but they have not been intubated."
