Today, there are 8,971 new cases of coronavirus infection in Croatia, about 4,000 less than a week ago. PCR testing confirmed 6,341 new cases and another 2,630 were confirmed through rapid antigen tests. Another 48 people have died. There are 2,131 people in hospitals, 173 of whom are on respirators, said the National Civil Protection Headquarters.

From February 25, 2020, when the first case of infection was recorded in Croatia, a total of 1,004,804 people infected with the new coronavirus have been recorded, of which 14,329 died, a total of 944,129 people recovered, of which 7,477 in the last 24 hours. There are currently 21,865 people in self-isolation. To date, a total of 4,375,754 people have been tested, of which 13,842 in the last 24 hours.

65.12 percent of the adult population vaccinated

As of February 9, 2022. 5,147,524 doses of vaccine were consumed, and 56.68% of the total population, and 67.44% of the adult population were vaccinated. On February 9, 2022, 6,116 doses of vaccine were consumed, of which 704 were vaccinated with the first dose. As of February 9, 2022, 2,300,234 people were vaccinated with at least one dose, of which 2,215,898 people completed vaccination (2,017,922 people vaccinated with two doses and 197,976 people vaccinated with Jannsen vaccine), which makes up 65.12% of the adult population.

“It is still necessary to be careful. The fifth wave of coronavirus is still a huge danger,” said scientist Ivan Đikić for Croatian Television. “You can see that our mortality rate is still extremely high, around 50 a day, it has not changed in the last two months at all and that is what worries us the most,” he said.

Citizens' interest in vaccination is declining. Only 779 people received the first dose yesterday. Increasing mobile teams is part of an epidemiological plan to make a turnaround and reach those who have not been vaccinated. The booster dose of the vaccine was received by Prime Minister Andrej Plenković yesterday.

By the beginning of next week at the latest, all schools will receive rapid antigen tests for students' self-testing. Principals have been given instructions to pass on to parents, and parents will also receive a statement to sign if they do not want to take the tests and test their children. The Ministry of Education once again notes that the implementation of the measure of voluntary self-testing would completely eliminate the self-isolation of healthy students.
