STA, 28 June 2020 - Out of 625 coronavirus tests conducted on Saturday, nine came back positive, show latest government data. There were no Covid-19 fatalities. Seven persons are in hospital care, with none requiring intensive care.
One Covid-19 patient was released from hospital yesterday. A total of 298 persons have been discharged from hospital so far.
Three new cases were recorded in the Koper municipality on Saturday (a total of eleven active coronavirus cases there), whereas Škofja Loka (6), Škofljica (5), Grosuplje, Kanal, Maribor and Ravne na Koroškem each saw one new case, according to the official data.
A total of 1,581 coronavirus infections have been confirmed so far in Slovenia. The national death toll remains at 111.
Milan Krek, director of the National Public Health Institute (NIJZ), told commercial broadcaster POP TV on Saturday evening that the recent new cases in Slovenia were dispersed across the country - a situation that is a result of most of them being imported from the Covid-19 risky countries, and has not been triggered by the in-country spread of the virus.
Krek added that the current epidemiologic status in Croatia was grave and that stricter measures would have to be implemented if the situation did not improve there.
