“Each one of us affects developments by our own example and behaviour, so the trend of increase in infections can be avoided,” he said at a cabinet meeting. He called for caution so as not to cancel the progress achieved in curbing the disease, notably due to the situation in neighbouring countries.

The minister said 408,270 COVID vaccine doses had arrived in Croatia so far and that 288,982 had been administered, with a little over 158,000 people receiving the first and over 65,000 both shots.

He said 73,078 doses had been administered to medical workers, with 10,316 receiving the first and 31,381 both shots.

Suspected vaccine side effects have been reported 1,342 times.

“By the end of March, we expect an additional 335,106 doses,” BeroŇ° said, adding that 743,376 doses will have been received in total by the end of the month.

The preliminary results of a serological analysis of 1,400 samples done by the Croatian Institute of Public Health show that 25% were positive, which indicates the number of people who were in contact with the virus, he said. After the neutralisation test, we will know how many are immune to COVID-19, he added.

By 5 March, more than 5,500 post-COVID patients have been hospitalised, most of them with respiratory problems.
