Total Croatia News



ZAGREB, Nov 5, 2020 – Health Minister Vili Beros said at a government session on Thursdaythat the pressure on the health system because of the corona crisis was strong, but that the health system was successfully dealing with it and had capacities ready for all scenarios.

“We continue to get great help from citizens whose behaviour can affect how the infection will continue to spread,” Beros said.

He said that public opinion polls had shown that citizens were mostly not for a complete lockdown and that most citizens continued to support measures and decisions by the national COVID-19 response team.

There are currently 14,843 active COVID-19 cases in Croatia, and 1,221 patients are being treated in hospitals. There are 930 cases of the infection among health workers, and 965 are in self-isolation.

Lately, the average number of coronavirus tests performed in a day has been 8,152, and 27.28% return positive.

According to Beros, the main goal is to strengthen the health system so that the virus does not spread to other hospitals and so that other patients could receive adequate health care.

For now, 111 health workers from other health institutions have been transferred to the KB Dubrava hospital in Zagreb, which has been admitting only COVID patients since November 2.

On Tuesday, antigen tests were introduced in Zagreb, Beros said.

Final-year medical students and 157 doctors working under supervision are helping epidemiologists.
