ZAGREB, July 27 (Hina) – In the last 24 hours there have been five new cases of infection with COVID-19 along the Croatian Adriatic coast, and this is the safest destination for guests from the European Union in the Mediterranean region, the Croatian Association of Tourism (HUT) stated on Monday.
From the area from Istria to the southernmost Croatian city of Dubrovnik, there are about 1.4 million inhabitants, and statistics show that there are only 0.357 newly diagnosed cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the coastal region, HUT explains.
If one takes into consideration that there are also an estimated 700,000 guests vacationing in the Croatian coastal region, the situation can be depicted in more favourable figures: 0.238 new cases per 100,000 people.
HUT has recently launched the Corona Region Tracker which shows that COVID incidence along the whole coast is declining.
There were 24 new COVID-19 cases reported in Croatia in the last 24 hours, the national crisis management team said on Monday. Today’s new cases bring the total number of cases since the start to 4,881. The current death toll stands at 139 and there have been 3,936 recoveries so far.
