ZAGREB, November 21, 2020 – Krapina-Zagorje County head Zeljko Kolar said on Saturday that the epidemiological situation in the county was very serious, with 104 new coronavirus cases and four fatalities in the last 24 hours.
The county head told a news conference that the county health system was functioning only owing to extreme efforts by medical workers.
“Forty-nine people have died since October 23. If that is not reason enough for people to get serious and start complying with epidemiological measures, I don’t know what is. We do not want the scenario that is happening in Varazdin County to happen here,” Kolar said in reference to Varazdin County being among the European regions with the highest seven-day incidence of coronavirus, with 944 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
There are currently 1,043 active cases in Krapina-Zagorje County and 1,453 people are self-isolating, the local COVID-19 response team said.
