A slight reduction in the number of patients infected with the new coronavirus and hospitalized in the past week in Croatia and Slovenia, according to a report by crisis teams on Sunday.
In Croatia, with a population of just over four million, 3339 new coronavirus infections have been identified in the last 24 hours, and 64 have died from the Covid-19 disease caused by the virus. The hospital cares for 2,538 patients, 330 of whom are on ventilators. So far, 2 million 174 thousand 631 people have been vaccinated, of whom 1 million 930 thousand 331 have already taken the second dose.
Vili Beros according to the Croatian health minister, “a large number of unvaccinated people have given birth to a new strain of the virus”. He added to the distance that general epidemiological rules, such as wearing a mask, disinfecting, ventilating, and avoiding larger gatherings, are also effective in curbing the new virus.
In neighboring Slovenia, 1,478 new coronavirus infections were registered on Sunday, and 23 patients died as a result of the infection. The hospital cares for 1,140 patients, 285 of whom are in the intensive care unit. In the country of just over two million people, 1,229,000,116 people have been vaccinated so far, of whom 1,146,000,403 million have already received the second dose.
According to Slovenian epidemiologists, given that only 54 percent of the population in the country has received both doses of one of the vaccines, and the other half are not vaccinated and are not in contact with the virus, the epidemic cannot be described as “stable”.
