The Croatian government this Saturday had to defend its plans to reopen the country despite 162 new infections and two deaths this Saturday, a clear sign of the arrival of a second wave of coronavirus that it has already attributed to tourist season young people celebrating.
Although the number was slightly lower this Saturday than the previous two days, 180 on Thursday and 208 on Friday, it far exceeds any other time since the first case was reported in February.
In total, Croatia, a country of 4.19 million people, has reported 6,420 cases and 162 deaths. As of Saturday, 1,062 active cases of Covid-19 were registered in the country.
In the first wave, the highest daily increase was 96 on April 1, after which the numbers steadily fell until they hit a single digit or zero between May 12 and June 18.
