More and More Younger COVID Patients on Ventilators, Health Minister Warns

ZAGREB, 9 Sept 2021 - Health Minister Vili Beroš said on Thursday that more and more unvaccinated people from younger age groups were being admitted to hospital due to COVID-19 infection.

By comparison, the average age of COVID hospitalized patients in the fourth wave is six years lower than in the third wave, and the average age of COVID patients placed on ventilators has fallen from 69 to 64 years, Beroš told the cabinet meeting.

 94% of patients on ventilators not vaccinated against COVID

The minister emphasized that 94% of COVID patients on ventilators had not been vaccinated against the disease.  He added that since the start of September when 5,360 new cases had been registered, 81.2% were unvaccinated cases.

In the period from 30 August to 5 September, 16.6% of new cases were children mainly aged between 15 and 18.

The minister said that the overall costs concerning the coronavirus pandemic increased to HRK 3 billion.

The costs of treatment have so far reached HRK 1.17 billion, which is equivalent to the cost of building a new hospital at Sušak in Rijeka, he said.

Interior Minister Davor Božinović announced the possibility of the current anti-epidemic rules being extended over the next period.

PM: Croatia's Turning Red on ECDC Map as Expected

ZAGREB, 9 Sept 2021 - Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said at a government session on Thursday that Croatia's turning red on the epidemiological map of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) was as expected given the spread of the much more contagious Delta coronavirus variant. 

"After it was orange and green on the ECDC map the whole summer, Croatia has now turned red, which is as expected considering the rise in the number of infections," he said.

"We are faced with the much more contagious Delta variant, which is more aggressive and spreads faster, and Croatia is already seeing an increase in the number of infections. We continue to insist that vaccination is the best and most efficient way to protect ourselves," he stressed, noting that so far close to 52% of the adult population had been vaccinated.

He recalled the basic epidemiological measures, such as room airing, physical distancing, mask-wearing, and personal hygiene, warning citizens against relaxing entirely.

The epidemiological restrictions applied in Croatia were appropriate to our mentality, health protection, and economic and financial trends, Plenković said, adding that compared to other countries, they had enabled a very good quality of life for Croatian citizens.

"Now it is important that the figures that are relevant at the moment - the number of hospitalizations, the number of patients in serious condition and the number of fatalities - be kept as low as possible," he said, adding that of the ten latest fatalities, only two had been vaccinated.

Most important part of tourist season without alarming situations

He expressed satisfaction with the tourist season, noting that there had been no alarming situations during the peak season.

Commenting on the coming census, he said that for the first time citizens would be able to self-enumerate via the e-Citizens (e-Građani) system.

The census will be conducted digitally from 13 to 26 September, after which data will be collected by around 8,000 census-takers, who will be in the field until 17 October, Plenković said.
