The sixth case of coronavirus in Croatia has been confirmed. This is a man from Rijeka who is in close contact with those already ill from Rijeka. According to unofficial information, it is the brother of a woman who became ill after her husband. They are all in good condition and have milder symptoms.
“We have 176 tested so far, two findings are still pending. We have another positive finding. It is a close relative of patients from Rijeka. So everything is under control, it has not expanded as it is spreading across Europe. We have an increase of 200 patients in Italy, 20 patients in France, 19 in Germany … I thank all Croatian citizens who are in isolation and quarantine … That is about 120 contacts and 1151 persons under surveillance,” Health Minister Vili Beros said.
“The person in Rijeka is feeling well, has mild symptoms. There is no cause for concern. The remaining two positives in Rijeka are also doing well,” said Alemka Markotic.
