Croatia Has Reported a New Record Daily Coronavirus Death Toll

November 13, 2020

ZAGREB, Croatia — Croatia has reported a new record daily virus death toll of 43 people died in the country of 4.2 million people.

Authorities said Friday that 3,056 more people tested positive, placing a burden on the health system.

Croatia says it will not impose a strict lockdown but authorities have instead limited gatherings and called on the people to wear face masks and respect social distancing.

In neighboring Slovenia, however, the government tightened its coronavirus lockdown late Thursday, shutting down public transport for two weeks, banning socializing outside immediate family and widening quarantine restrictions for people who travel abroad.

Slovenia on Friday said 38 people have died in the past 24 hours and 1,508 new infections have been confirmed.
