Health Minister Vili Beros said in a press conference at the National Civil Protection Headquarters that the case is related to close people so far infected.

One is infected close contact of an infected person in Zagreb and the other is close contact of an infected person in Rijeka.

One new infected was hospitalized at the Rijeka Clinical Hospital and he is middle aged, and the other is infected in Zagreb and he is younger. Beros explained that in both cases these were mild symptoms. He added that the contacts of the primary patients were under surveillance.

"Both new cases are close contacts of the primary infected, indicating that closer infection is still required to transmit the infection. All the new infected were previously quarantined in the hospital, so these are persons who became infected with contact with the first infected and this is not a case of some new external cases of infection. These are the contacts of the first and third infected," explained the Director of the Infectious Diseases Clinic" Dr. Fran Mihaljevic Alemka Markotic. "These are now home infections, which leads us to need more frequent contact within the family to spread the infection. All three patients are well, with very mild symptoms. There is nothing to worry about and we believe they will be released soon," she said.
