ZAGREB, July 16, 2020 (Hina/CW) – There were 86 new COVID-19 cases reported in Croatia in the last 24 hours, the national crisis management team said at a press conference on Thursday in Zagreb.
Today’s new cases bring the total to 4, 039.
“Over 74% of today’s new cases were people who were in self-isolation who were not in a position to spread the virus,” Health Minister Vili Beros said.
There were no new COVID-19-related fatalities reported in the last 24 hours. The current death toll stands at 120. There have been 2,729 recoveries so far, 100 more than yesterday.
There are 1,199 active cases currently in Croatia with 136 people in hospital and six patients currently on a ventilator.
Since late February, Croatia has conducted 99,414 tests, including 1,690 in the last 24 hours.
Most of the active cases are in the capital Zagreb, Osijek-Baranja and Split-Dalmatia counties.
Most Croats comply with epidemiological measures, says minister
Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic informed the government on Thursday that over 96% of citizens, employers and event organisers complied with the epidemiological measures issued by the relevant authorities in a bid to curb COVID-19.
The minister underscores that the results of the ramped-up control of the measures and recommendations show that nearly 97% of citizens, employers and events’ organisers honoured those instructions to the largest extent.
The minister called for responsible behaviour of all citizens and all other segments of the society.
Currently, 492,000 visitors are vacationing in Croatia, and 85% of them are foreign tourists, Bozonovic said.
