As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Krunoslav Capak stated that as far as the data for last Monday is concerned, when looked at on a weekly basis, there has been a 14.5 percent drop in Croatia’s infection rate. The current incidence is 366.4, the lowest is in Dubrovnik, and the highest is in Medjmurska.

Croatia’s 14 day incidence rate when compared to the EU puts the country in 14th place out of 27 EU countries. 1502.1 is the highest incidence and is in the Czech Republic.

Croatia is also in 20th place in terms of coronavirus related mortality in the European Union. 20.7 percent is the Croatian share of positives in terms of total testing, and 29,746 people were vaccinated before 19:00 yesterday.

Minister Beros said that Croatia is doing really well in recording positive epidemiological trends, the number of newly infected and hospitalised is now much smaller. These lower figures indicate the level of responsibility of Croatia’s residents, but they also speak of the scope of the country’s current anti-epidemic measures.

“By no means should we reverse this trend and realise the third wave that is now being talked about a lot and that is happening in the surrounding countries, which is the result of increased socialising. There is no way we can relax anything, there will be no measure loosening. An example that describes this very well is the American research which showed that over 50 percent of new coronavirus infections are in people who have been infected by asymptomatic carriers, that is why masks continue to be very important,’’ said Minister Beros.

When asked about the measures at the Croatian borders, Minister Davor Bozinovic said that the decision he will make on January the 15th, will be based on the situation in Croatia’s immediate region and environment, which is still not good.

“At the moment, we aren’t considering any relaxation of the currently valid border procedures,” Bozinovic said briefly.
