Croatia received an additional 17,550 doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on Monday, said Health Minister Vili Beroš.
Croatia has vaccinated 12,285 people since it launched the inoculation campaign on December 27, a day after receiving the first shipment of the Pfizer vaccine.
Croatia reported 361 new coronavirus infections on Monday, however, Minister Beroš acknowledged that the number may be especially low due to slow testing over the holidays. Croatia tested 2,985 people in the last 24 hours. Testing is expected to ramp up again by mid-January. Although testing has been slow, the cases and deaths have been declining. Croatia reported 54 fatalities over the past 24 hours.
The number of active cases stands at 5,899 and 2,453 people are currently receiving hospital treatment, including 196 patients who are on ventilators.
The death toll has climbed to 4,126.
The restrictions that were put in place before the holidays are in effect until January 10. The coronavirus task force will decide then if they will be extended for an additional week or more.
