On Monday, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned against travel to Croatia, Armenia, Austria, Barbados, and Latvia due to rising COVID-19 cases.

The CDC raised its travel recommendations to “level 4, very high” and told Americans that they should avoid traveling to those five countries.


“Avoid travel to Croatia. If you must travel to Croatia, make sure you are fully vaccinated before travel,” the CDC said. The CDC encourages travelers to be fully vaccinated before travel, though even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants. 

On Monday, Croatia registered 219 new coronavirus cases and 7 COVID-19-related deaths over the past 24 hours with the number of active cases at 8,073.

There were 810 infected patients receiving hospital treatment, and 98 of them on ventilators.

“Since 25 February 2020, when the first case was confirmed in Croatia, 408,918 people have been registered as having contracted the novel coronavirus, and 8,685 of them have died, while 392,160 have recovered, including 1,208 in the last 24 hours. Currently, there are 18,521 people in self-isolation.

To date, 2,855,076 people have been tested, 3,032 of whom over the past 24 hours,” the Croatian Civil Protection Headquarters reported on Monday. 

We await the new numbers for today, which will undoubtedly be higher. 

The CDC has also reduced travel recommendations to “level 3” for Morocco, Argentina, France, Iceland, Lesotho, Nepal, Portugal, and South Africa but advises its citizens to get fully vaccinated before taking a trip.

The CDC uses World Health Organization data along with other official sources to determine the risk levels.
