Currently there are 528 people with active positive test results in Croatia, of which 132 are receiving treatment in hospital. Ten patients are on ventilators. 3 777 people are in self-isolation.

According to the latest data from the National Civil Protection Directorate, 96 new positive coronavirus test results have been registered over the past 24 hours, on the basis of 5 103 tests conducted in that period. This puts Croatia's test positivity rate for the past day at just under 1.9%. Two coronavirus-related deaths have been reported since yesterday, while 65 people have been given a clean bill of health.

Since the beginning of the outbreak in Croatia, on February 25th of last year, a total of 2 171 883 coronavirus tests have been conducted, with 360 342 coming back positive. This puts Croatia's overall test positivity rate at less than 17%. Of those 360 342, 351 593 have since been given a clean bill of health.

A total of 8 221 people have been reported to have died as a result of complications due to the coronavirus. As a percentage of the total population this is roughly 0.2%, and less than 2.3% of the total number of positive test results registered since February of 2021.

As of yesterday, Croatian health care workers have administered 2 687 515 doses of the coronavirus vaccine. 1 175 528 people have received both doses of the vaccine, while 336 459 people have received their first injection. Yesterday alone 18 813 doses of the vaccine were administered. Currently 45 percent of the adult population has been vaccinated.

Meanwhile, according to media reports, the German Robert Koch Institute, a German Government agency and research institute responsible for disease control and prevention, Croatia's Zadar County is close to being put on the so-called red list. If the decision is made and Zadar County is put on the red list, this means that German citizens who have visited Zadar County in the previous 10 days will not be allowed to re-enter Germany without first undergoing a 14 day quarantine and testing, with no exemption for fully vaccinated individuals, while non-German residents will not be granted entry into the country.

As a result, the Zadar County civil protection directorate has decided to introduce new, even harsher restrictive measures. However, most citizens from the county find the constantly changing measures and guidelines inconsistent, contradictory and many ultimately feel that they have caused more damage than good.

As of the past 24 hours 23 new positive coronavirus test results have been registered in the county, with a test positivity rate of 9.66%. Currently there are 154 active cases in the county, which is close to 0.09% of the county's population of roughly 170 000.
