In Croatia, 980 new cases of coronavirus infection were confirmed today, out of more than 6,800 people tested, meaning that the number of positives among those tested is around 14 percent. Another 45 people have died.
1,921 patients are being treated in hospitals and 176 patients are on respirators. 1,025 people have recovered in the last 24 hours. At the same time, more and more people are being vaccinated among those most endangered, and so far more than 38,000 people have been vaccinated.
Today, there were 150 fewer new cases of coronavirus infection than yesterday.

At today's Government cabinet session, Minister of Health Vili Beroš presented the data on the total number of vaccinated.
“In the period between December 27th and January 13th, 38,281 doses of vaccine were used and by the number of vaccinated people per 100 inhabitants, according to yesterday's data, Croatia is ranked 6th in the European Union. In Sisak-Moslavina County 3,652 people have been vaccinated,” said Minister Beroš.
