ECDC says situation in Croatia 'worrying'




The COVID-19 situation has continued to deteriorate in the European Union and is considered "very worrying" in ten countries, including Croatia, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) said on Friday.

Of the 27 EU member states, the situation is very worrying in Belgium, Poland, the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary and Slovenia, the ECDC said.

The most favourable epidemiological situation is in Italy, Malta, Spain and Sweden, it added.

Croatia remained "dark red" on the ECDC's latest COVID-19 map, released on Thursday.

In the EU and the European Economic Area, 81.1 per cent of people aged above 18 have received at least one dose of vaccine, the ECDC said.

Health Minister Vili Beroš called on vaccine hesitant people to get immunized with a post on his personal Twitter page on Friday.

"In the last three days, more than 50,000 citizens have received a first dose. They are a part of the society of more than two million citizens who have made their decision on vaccination, based on scientific facts. I call on the hesitant to follow their example," wrote the minister.

He also informed the general public about places where they can get information and advice if they are not sure about vaccination.
