ZAGREB, July 22, 2020 – There were 108 new COVID-19 cases reported in Croatia in the last 24 hours, the national crisis management team said at a press conference in Zagreb on Wednesday.
Today’s new cases bring the total number of cases since the start to 4,530.
There were two new COVID-19-related fatalities reported in the last 24 hours, both male patients, aged 74 and 75 at Osijek hospital with underlying health conditions.
The current death toll stands at 125.
There have been 3,278 recoveries so far, 95 more than yesterday.
There are 1,127 active cases currently in Croatia with 143 people in hospital and 9 patients currently on a ventilator.
Since late February, Croatia has conducted 106,805 tests, including 1,279 in the last 24 hours.
Most of the active cases are still in the capital Zagreb, Vukovar-Srijem, Osijek-Baranja and Split-Dalmatia counties.
“The most number of new cases were from the Vukovar-Srijem county from a wedding. Only a very small number of those infected in Croatia are tourists,” said the head of the Croatian Public Health Institute Krunoslav Capak.
“Today’s numbers are from an event which took place recently in the Vukovar-Srijem county and we are not surprised by the numbers. This epidemic is going to go on for a while. People need to be prepared, mentally, for autumn. We are in a new phase now where we have opened up the economy and it is complex but we need to stick together. We will continue to try and make life as much as normal as possible in Croatia,” Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic said.
