Minister announces full allowance for healthcare staff infected with Sars-CoV-2

LJUBLJANA - Responding to claims about healthcare staff receiving only partial pay compensation during sick leave even in cases where they likely contracted Sars-CoV-2 at work, Health Minister Matjaž Gantar announced on Saturday that this would be remedied in the next coronacrisis stimulus package. "Those exposed the most are definitely entitled to a full allowance," Gantar tweeted in the wake of reports about healthcare employers' refusal to accept the claims of staff that they contracted the virus during work and were thus entitled to full as opposed to 80% compensation.
