A total of 7 856 coronavirus-related deaths have been reported. 1 958 888 tests have been conducted, while 16 591 people are currently in self-isolation.

According to the National Civil Protection Directorate 525 new positive coronavirus test results have been registered over the past 24 hours, on the basis of 5 829 tests conducted in that period. That puts Croatia's test positivity rate over the past 24 hours at nine percent. 28 coronavirus-related deaths have been reported since yesterday, while 948 people have been given a clean bill of health. Currently there are 4 633 people with active positive test results, of which 1 331 are receiving treatment in hospital. 131 patients are on ventilators.

As of yesterday a total of 1 507 353 doses of the coronavirus vaccine have been administered in Croatia. 57 184 vaccination shots were administered yesterday alone. Currently 1 149 941 people have received their first dose of the vaccine, while 357 412 have received both doses. Prime Minister Andrej Plenković today commented on the mass vaccination campaign: "As of today we're roughly at one million and 150 thousand people having already received their first dose of the vaccine. Given that we have more than enough vaccines for May and June, I am absolutely convinced that we will achieve our goal of having 50 to 55 percent of the adult population vaccinated by June 30th. That's roughly one million and 650 thousand people."

Dubrovnik-Neretva County has initiated a mass vaccination campaign for sailors, with those interested in receiving the vaccine able to schedule an appointment via the Seafarers' Union of Croatia online platform.
