"CROATIA LOSES THE BATTLE WITH THE CROWN" Because the starting of the epidemic, MOST DEAD, in Slovenia 1,000 circumstances MORE THAN YESTERDAY
In the last 24 hours, 2378 new cases of SARS-CoV-2 virus infection were recorded, and the number of active cases in Croatia today is 12736.
Among them, there are 932 patients on hospital treatment, of which 68 patients are on respirators.
Since February 25, 2020, when the first case of infection was recorded in Croatia, a total of 40,999 people infected with the new corona virus have been recorded so far, of which 493 have died, a total of 27,770 people have recovered, of which 930 in the last 24 hours.
There are currently 14,924 people in self-isolation.
To date, a total of 466,315 people have been tested, of which 8,589 in the last 24 hours.
Today’s death toll is even higher than yesterday’s, which was the largest until then.
Croatia is slowly losing the battle with the virus, claims the immunologist, professor at the University of Rijeka Stipan Jonjic, who points out that the most important thing now is to protect the health system and appeals to sanctify everyone in accordance with the situation, which, he warns, is extraordinary.
– We are slowly losing the battle with the virus in the sense that we can use classic epidemiological measures, that we can recognize contacts. How many epidemiologists would it take now to connect all contacts … – stated Jonjić.
He believes that the whole strategy must be changed and claims that Croatian experts know that.
– We must do everything to prevent the collapse of the hospital system, a lot is being done in that regard – he said as a guest on Zagreb’s N1 TV.
He believes that the measures of recommendations should be stopped in this, according to him, emergency situation, and that regulations should be passed instead.
– It is not a question of democracy or human rights, but the protection of the hospital system for the benefit of all. If measures are adopted that need to be respected, then the ministers must redistribute the people. The staffs will have to mobilize people, and they are behaving according to emergency measures, but the entire health care system must understand that it will probably no longer be in peacetime, but other things may be done – Jonjić appealed.
He points out that everyone must be aware and that they must not do something that will make the situation worse.
– I think that it will work in Croatia, we have learned to deal with difficult situations – said Jonjić.

A new record number of cases of infection was announced last night by the director of the Golnik hospital, Aleš Rozman, who says that he believes that the numbers will not start to decrease soon.
– When the results are supplemented, we will be able to count on a larger number. There is no indication that the number of new infections could fall. We hope that the numbers will start to calm down at the end of the week, when the last prescribed measures start to take effect – said Rozman, director of one of the covid hospitals and a member of the government’s expert team.
