Flu epidemic hits Croatia with 188 cases recorded in Dubrovnik

By  Jan 14, 2018

A flu epidemic is washing over Croatia filling hospitals and doctors’ offices in the first weeks of 2018. As of the 7th of January there were 3,845 flu cases registered in Croatia, with the largest number of patients coming from the north of the country, especially around the Zagreb area.

This indicates that we are in the ascending phase of a flu epidemic and it is expected that the epidemic will last for several weeks into February, after which the number of patients will fall gradually, reported the Croatian Institute of Public Health.

In the Dubrovnik – Neretva County in the first week of January there were 188 flu cases recorded.

As in previous seasons, the highest incidence of influenza has been seen with children aged 5 to 14 years old.

The Croatian Institute for Public Health has provided 280,000 doses of flu vaccine for this season. The amount of vaccine was estimated based on the response to vaccination in the previous season.
