837 positive coronavirus test results have been registered over the past 24 hours, with a test positivity rate of slightly more than 9%.

Appearing on Croatian Television's Sunday at 2 talk show today, Zagreb University professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and a member of government's science council, Dr. Gordan Lauc, said that he is opposed to mandatory vaccination: "Getting vaccinated is less risky than contracting the virus. There's no doubt about that. The reason the vaccine carries a risk with is because it has the gene for s-glycoprotein, which can result in certain problems. And some people are afraid of that, and they have a right to how they feel. On the other hand the virus carries much more of that protein than the virus. So, if we're not sure what to do, a vaccine with a small amount of that protein, or getting infected with a large dose of that protein, then it's much better to get vaccinated than to contract the virus. But if the state mandates vaccines, primarily those under the age of sixty but even those who are older, the state has not right to do that. Forcing anyone to get vaccinated, blackmailing them into getting vaccinated, is wrong!"

Lauc also made it clear that he is opposed to the coronavirus restrictive measures being imposed on the citizenry: "The English media have published very clear studies that show that the lockdown killed more people than the virus. And don't forget, that the measures do not save lives. The measures only widen the period in which some people will get infected. The measures save lives if they prevent the overburdening of the health system and if they lead to a vaccine. But today, the measures have absolutely no effect at all. The health system isn't overburdened, a grand total of five percent of people in hospitals are COVID-positive. So, even if it were ten times that amount, the health sector wouldn't be overburdened. But the measures are harmful in some ways."
