ZAGREB (Reuters) - Slovenia reported on Wednesday a record 1,503 daily cases of COVID-19, and Croatia posted a record high of 1,424 new infections.

This week Slovenia introduced a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. and a 30-day state of emergency to cope with the coronavirus.. Slovenia has altogether had 15,982 cases of COVID-19 and 200 fatalities.

Croatia, which so far has had 28,287 cases and 393 deaths, said it was not yet considering such measures. At the moment, Croatia mandates wearing face masks indoors, limits the number of customers in bars and restaurants, and receive a limited number of guests, and requires gatherings of more than 50 people to get approval from the authorities.
