Covid: Croatia, strong leap of infections, over 2 thousand in 24 hours
After weeks with a relatively calm epidemiological situation, Croatia has recorded a strong growth in new coronavirus cases in recent days, with 2,022 confirmed infected in the last 24 hours, the first time with more than two thousand cases since last May. Currently in the country there are just over 9,000 people with active infection, and intensive care patients are also growing, to date 128, almost all unvaccinated. Since yesterday, 27 people have died, a number that brings the total death toll in Croatia to 8,829. With just 54 percent of the adult population vaccinated, Croatia has one of the lowest vaccination rates in Europe. For now, however, no new restrictive measures are being considered. The green pass is mandatory only to access health facilities, while bars and restaurants can also be used indoors. The rise in coronavirus cases is attributed to the arrival of autumn and the cold that causes many to gather indoors.
