Croatia had fewer new cases of coronavirus infection today than in the last few days, 65. However the bad news is that three more people have died. Most new cases are still in Zagreb and Vukovar-Srijem County.
The number of those infected today is lower than yesterday, but the three deaths still warn us to be careful; wash hands, wear masks, maintain a reasonable distance, especially in stores. In Zagreb today there were 15 new cases.
Lately, those with symptoms, doubts or needs are increasingly coming to the drive in diagnostic centre pointed out a laboratory technician at the "Doctor Andrija Štampar" institute Lana Jalšovec.
“From eight in the morning there were around 150 people here. We're not used to it and now temperatures are rising and it's very hot. It's fairly difficult to work. When we begin in the morning there are ten to 15 cars here along with people who come without a car, so there is always a crowd. They're here as long as we're working,” said Jalšovec
Istria, with its 200 thousand tourists, is doing well, it has 10 new patients; unfortunately one elderly woman died at the general hospital in Pula.
“What is very important is that those 10 newly infected people are from previously existing contacts, or self-isolation, from hotspots from previous days, so that there are no new hotspots. In the last 24 hours unfortunately one elderly person died who was infected but also had numerous chronic diseases,” said the Head of the County Civil Protection Headquarters Dino Kozlevac.
Meanwhile it is difficult to say how much the situation in Vukovar-Srijem County is under control, because even today a large number of patients were recorded; 15. The Split area with 12 new cases is not far off. In Sisak there were 7; Šibenik had two, as well as Zadar, while Koprivnica-Križevci, Zagreb and Osijek-Baranja counties had one each.
It seems as though such a strict regime need not be introduced in Međimurje for now; or in Primorje-Gorski Kotar, Virovitica, Brod-Posavina, Dubrovnik-Neretva, Varaždin and Krapina-Zagorje counties, where there were no newly infected people today.
