Croatia has registered 170 new coronavirus cases and four Covid-related deaths in the last 24 hours, and currently there are 1,088 active cases in the country, Health Minister Vili Beros said at a press conference of the national coronavirus response team on Friday.
This is a slight decrease in the number of new cases compared with 176 cases registered seven days ago. “What the future trends will be like depends on ourselves alone,” Beros said.
In the last 14 days, 2,009 new cases have been recorded, which puts the 14-day incidence rate per 100,000 population at 49.1.
A total of 5,397 persons have been tested for coronavirus in the last 24 hours and 3.15 percent of the tests have returned positive.
Currently, 154 people are receiving hospital treatment, five more than on Thursday, and 12 of them are on ventilators. In the last 24 hours, 25 new Covid patients have been admitted to hospitals and 15 have been discharged.
The four persons who have died were at an advanced age and were not vaccinated, Beros warned.
Since the outbreak of the epidemic in Croatia in late February last year, 8,254 people have died from Covid-19.
By 29 July, 3,057,321 doses of vaccine against Covid-19 had been administered, with 1,639,095 people having been vaccinated, which is 40.4 percent of the total population and 48.6 percent of the adult population. 36.18 percent of the total population and 43.57 percent of the adult population have been fully inoculated.
