1 925 positive coronavirus test results were registered today, with a test positivity rate of 19%. The coronavirus fatality rate in Croatia currently stands at 2%. Based on the latest data, which include both deaths from and with COVID-19, coronavirus deaths represent roughly 0.2% of the country’s total population.
President Zoran Milanović today responded to pulmonologist, Dr. Saša Srića, who yesterday criticized his questioning of the coronavirus measures, telling the president that he should stick to his own expertise: "This isn't about expertise, this is about common sense. This is about the dignity of an entire nation, which I didn't discuss for an entire year but I am now. If proof of vaccination is required to enter into a place, then what's the logic of limiting the number of people that can enter that place? A few days ago I returned from New York where they don't have that measure. And as far as I know they have a few doctors too."
President Milanović has long been arguing that the restrictive measures being adopted by Croatia’s Civil protection Directorate are illogical and counterproductive. There have also been a growing number of situations worldwide that bring into question the frenzy to get everyone vaccinated. At the beginning of the week, Singapore recorded 1 647 cases of COVID-19, bringing its seven-day average to 1 545 cases per day. This is higher than at any other point in the pandemic in spite of the fact that Singapore has fully vaccinated over 80% of its population (one of the highest rates in the world). Furthermore, data from Singapore shows that 52% of coronavirus infections over the past month have been among the vaccinated while 48% have been unvaccinated.
Israel, which also ranks among the countries with the highest vaccination rate, experienced a similar fate recently when it too recorded a massive new wave of infections in spite of its high vaccination rate. Unfortunately, news about these unexpected flare ups in Singapore and Israel have gone unreported by most media, including those in Croatia.
