Croatia has recorded 23 cases of the delta variant of coronavirus, also known as Indian, in five of its counties, and if it starts to spread, more stringent epidemiological measures.
In five counties
This was announced on Friday by the director of the Croatian Institute of Public Health and a member of the national crisis staff Krunoslav Capak, who was quoted by the HINA news agency.
“The Indian variant was found in the Medzimurská, Šibenik-Knin, Varaždin and Split-Dalmatia counties and in Zagreb. Naturally, we are concerned. “ Capak added at a regular press conference on COVID-19.
“The Indian variant is spreading 30 to 40 times faster than the classic or British variant, which has recently prevailed. There are indications that the disease is more serious and affects younger people, and if it starts to spread among us, we will have to introduce more stringent measures. “ Capak pointed out.
Warning to all
Croatia has seen 118 new cases of coronavirus infection in the last 24 hours, a slight increase from last week, but the number has fallen by 25 percent for the whole week.
The highest incidence rate is in Zadar County, which is a consequence of recent celebrations after the basketball game, when fans did not follow epidemiological measures. The result – 70 percent of new cases recorded in Zadar County are people under the age of 40.
“This is a warning to us all,” stressed Capak. European Union citizens coming to Croatia from the green zones do not have to go to quarantine or be tested and can enter the country freely, Capak said.
Addicted to tourism
Most importantly, Croatia, which is heavily dependent on tourism, should remain in the green zone.
“In this case, everyone will be able to return to their country without further restrictions. We have to stay in the green zone. It is in the interest of Croatian health and economy, “ declared the head of the crisis staff and Minister of the Interior Davor Božinovič.
