Total Croatia News



ZAGREB, Oct 24, 2020 – The number of COVID-19 fatalities has been dramatically rising recently, 50 in the past five days, and the average age of the fatalities in intensive care at Zagreb’s Infectious Diseases Hospital is seven years lower than two weeks ago, Jutarnji List said on Saturday.

According to the hospital’s infectologist Vladimir Krajinovic, that age has dropped from an average 70 to 63.

He says the mortality rate in his intensive care unit over the past eight months has remained about 50%, and 60% for those on ventilators. “All patients have the same disease.”

Krajinovic says he saw data from Ljubljana ten days ago and that they are the same as in his hospital. “Interpreting mortality and comparing countries is quite unfortunate and time will tell how things are being presented and what the real situation is.”
