The most new cases today were in Split-Dalmatia County. The director of the County Institute of Public Health, Željka Karin once again warned about the direct connection between the number of people tested and the number of patients.

“We conducted 388 tests, we have 21 newly infected people, we didn't have any new cases yesterday because we had a smaller number of tests, considering the fact that we only worked on emergency cases due to the holiday the day before yesterday,” said Karin.

The number of patients among young people is growing, and nightclubs are becoming hotspots again, warned Karin.

“In this period we have an increasing number of younger people infected, due to socializing in summer time, and that is why we have an increase in the number of cases. We need to warn the youth who are socializing increasingly at weddings but also in night clubs. On today's day we have four newly infected people connected to socializing at a night club,” said Karin.

Meanwhile, the Secretary of the Vukovar-Srijem County Headquarters Ivan Kubiček said that 14 patients, who were placed in the hospital yesterday from the "Grim" home for the elderly and disabled in Vinkovci, have moderate clinical pictures.

“It may be impossible to determine, as you heard yesterday from the owner of the home and at a news conference, it is assumed that the virus entered either through a visit, that is allowed now, or from one of the employees, who might have been an asymptomatic case,” said Kubiček.

In Istria, a health care worker at the Pula General Hospital has tested positive. All anti-epidemic measures and decontamination of the area have been carried out, and four health workers, one doctor and three nurses are in self-isolation, reported the director of the Pula hospital, Irena Hrstić.

There were 7 new cases of coronavirus infection in Vukovar-Srijem County.

There were three new patients in Zadar County, one of whom was in self-isolation and developed symptoms of the disease, and the other two were identified as contacts and placed under supervision.

There was one newly ill patient in Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, a younger person who returned from a vacation in Dalmatia.

For the eighth day in a row, there were no newly infected with coronavirus in Virovitica-Podravina County, and all findings are negative in Bjelovar-Bilogora County.
