The head of the Croatian Public Health Institute, Krunoslav Capak, told a press conference on Friday a review of fatal cases would begin on Monday next week in order to differentiate deaths from COVID and deaths with COVID.

"All deaths will be registered with the institute and unclear cases will be reviewed to determine whether the death was caused by COVID or something else," he explained.


Head of Zagreb's Infectious Diseases Hospital, Alemka Markotić, commented on the vaccination rate in Croatia and across Europe, saying some countries removed epidemiological measures prematurely.


"The number of new infections has increased in those countries which drastically lifted epidemiological measures. As of right now, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, the minimum is for 75 percent of the total population in Europe to be vaccinated for us to be able to control the virus from spreading any further," said Markotić.


Labour Minister Josip Aladrović noted that both the healthcare and social welfare systems were full prepared for the implementation of mandatory Covid-19 Certificates for employees that comes into force on Monday.


Fifteen percent of the coronavirus tests conducted over the past 24 hours came back positive, resulting in 1,517 new infections. Ten virus-related deaths were also recorded over the same period.
