Good news for Croatian tourism this week from the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC).
The ECDC published its latest map yesterday and the Croatian coast, from Istria to Dubrovnik, is no longer marked in the red. This follows a fall in the COVID-19 incidence rate and improvement in the epidemiological situation n the recent weeks.
The map shows the 14-day incidence (rate of infected) of coronavirus in each European country per 100,000 inhabitants.
Countries are marked orange if the 14-day notification rate is lower than 50 cases per 100 000 but the test positivity rate is 4% or higher or, if the 14-day notification rate is between 25 and 150 cases per 100 000 and the test positivity rate is below 4%.
The Croatian coast is marked in yellow on the updated map, just like most of Europe. The northern part of Croatia, Slovenia, Greece, a large part of Spain and France, the extreme south of Italy and the Benelux countries are marked in red.
The maps are published by ECDC every Thursday and are based on data reported by EU Member States.
Croatia registered 280 new cases of the coronavirus infection on Thursday and 14 related deaths
The number of active cases on Thursday stood at 1,945. There are 653 patients in hospitals, 66 of whom are on ventilators.
Since 25 February 2020, when the first case of the infection was registered in Croatia, a total of 357,109 people have been registered as having contracted the novel coronavirus, 8,056 of them have died, and 347,108 have recovered, including 312 in the last 24 hours.
