There were 186 new cases of coronavirus infection in Croatia today, and one person has died. The highest number of infected people was in Split-Dalmatia County - 41. There were 32 new cases of infection in Zadar County, 18 in Dubrovnik-Neretva County, and eight in Sisak-Moslavina County.

“As of today, Zadar County is in the orange zone according to the European coronavirus map - it is no longer in the red,” said Minister of Tourism and Sports Nikolina Brnjac.

“You've proven that it can be done, after a month of being in the red, Zadar county is now orange, which will surely affect the arrival of tourists, especially from the German market, and we know that at the end of July holidays began in Bavaria and this will surely be reflected in the continuation of the tourist season itself,” said Brnjac.

Brnjac added that there are 350 testing stations on the Adriatic, and in Kvarner tourists can get tested for Covid-19 at 57 locations.

“Prices are truly acceptable, around 70 kuna, it's important to provide proof of registry in the e-visitor system, meaning so that it can be seen that this is truly a guest. What is also pleasing is that the Stay Safe in Croatia label has over 3,000 subjects in Kvarner. They truly adhere to epidemiological measures and that is what also provides a feeling of security for guests. And we must say that feedback we have from guests is very good,” said the director of the Kvarner Tourist Board Irena Peršić Živadinov.

There are 16 newly infected people with the coronavirus in Zagreb, mostly contacts from private gatherings, or those returning from vacation. "The situation is epidemiologically stable, but we are recording numbers that are increasing day by day, and this calls us to adhere to epidemiological measures," said the deputy director of the Institute of Public Health Sandra Šikić.

“Here at 6 Mirogoj Street, at the Štampar institute, we conduct PCR testing for the entire city of Zagreb. All citizens can come here, as well as all other citizens from the Republic of Croatia,” said Šikić.

“Citizens can get tested every day from 8 am to 2 pm and on weekends between 8 am and 10 am,” added Šikić.
