Although Slovenia has registered only 358 new coronavirus infections in the last 24 hours and fewer than 10% of tests have returned positive, its government is not considering easing the restrictions at the moment.
With the average daily number of new cases currently at 394, the Slovenian government expects that the country could enter the “green” phase of the epidemic in less than two weeks provided that the present trend continues. In that case, the bulk of the restrictions currently in place would be lifted, but people coming from “red” destinations would still require a negative test or a certificate confirming that the person has recovered from COVID-19 or has been vaccinated.
On Thursday, 363 people infected with COVID-19 were receiving hospital treatment, including 110 who were in intensive care. The seven-day incidence rate was 312 per 100,000 people, the number of active cases was at 6,247, and seven more people had died from COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, the government said.
The government discussed the pandemic management last night, extending the application of most of the measures and restrictions.
