ZAGREB, 4 JUNE, 2020 – There has been one new COVID-19 case reported in Croatia in the last 24 hours, the national crisis management team said in a statement on Thursday.
Today is the 101st day since coronavirus arrived in Croatia and with just five new cases in the last two weeks and one case in June, the total number of cases now stands at 2,247.
The new case was reported in Koprivnica-Krizevci County.
There were no new COVID-19-related fatalities reported in the last 24 hours.
The current death toll stands at 103.
There have been 2,105 recoveries to date, 10 more than yesterday. Currently, there are 38 active cases in Croatia with 15 people in hospital and 3 patients currently on a ventilator.
Since late February, Croatia has conducted 67,997 tests, including 183 in the last 24 hours.
“Epidemiological indicators are more than satisfactory, however, I have been calling for caution all the time,” Health Minister Vili Beros told the national broadcaster (HRT) on Wednesday evening.
As for declaring the end of the coronavirus outbreak in the country, Beros says that although there are exact epidemiological criteria which are supposed to be fulfilled to declare the end of the outbreak of an infectious disease, the Croatian authorities will continue to be on alert since this is a novel virus and since “we are now opening up borders for tourists coming from the countries where there are still cases of that disease,” he explained.
