Istria County on Saturday declared its victory over COVID-19, and therefore on Saturday night the major roundabout in the city of Pula was illuminated in light blue, the symbolic colour of the fight against this infections disease.
The roundabout was lit up in that colour also as an expression of gratitude to healthcare services in Istria.
The local coronavirus crisis management team earlier on Saturday stated that there were no more patients diagnosed with COVID-19 in the Croatian county which was declared corona-free zone.
Since the start of the epidemic, there have been 87 patients who have caught this novel virus and all of them, except for two seniors who passed away due to Covid-19, recovered by Saturday.
Local epidemiologist Aleksandar Stojanovic said on Saturday that a total of 1,733 people had been tested since the outbreak of COVID-19.
There are still 1,384 people in self-isolation.
“We have a calm and stable situation, and we don’t expect any major changes,” Stojanovic said.
