Croatia has registered 291 new coronavirus cases since yesterday. Two coronavirus-related deaths have also been reported. Currently there are 2 567 active cases in the country, of which 320 are receiving treatment in hospital, 27 are on respirators.
Since the beginning of the outbreak a total of 12 917 cases have been registered. 10 142, or more than 78%, have achieved a full recovery. In simple terms roughly 0.003% of the population have been infected by the virus since February 25th, when the first case was recorded.
Currently there are 8 711 people in self-isolation.
Meanwhile, Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Davor Božinović told reporters today that Croatia is preparing to reduce the number of days of self-isolation. He added however, that it would be better if this were agreed to on the multinational level, so that all countries agreed to the same benchmark. He went on to say that it is important for Croatia to have the European Union take a stand on the issue.
Initially self-isolation was 28 days, before it was reduced to 21 and then the current 14 days. There is open discussion internationally that it should be further reduced to seven days, something a number of countries are already considering.
