Slovenia records 1,342 new coronavirus infections on Saturday, 25 people die

There were 1,342 new Sars-CoV-2 infections confirmed in Slovenia on Saturday, a continuation of the slightly declining daily cases count, albeit on a slightly scaled down weekend testing figure of 4,807. The 28% positivity rate is on par with that seen in recent days. A record 25 fatalities were recorded, raising the death toll to 363.

The number of hospitalised Covid-19 patients has increased by 5.4% to 821 and the number of those in intensive care by 7.4% to 131. The number of patients on ventilators grew by 5 to 70.

Since the start of the epidemic Slovenia has recorded 35,649 cases, of which 22,501 are currently active, while the rolling 14-day average has increased by 2.8% 1,074 per 100,000 residents, according to data tracker Covid-19 Sledilnik.

“The daily incidence is growing, but at a slower pace. Gorenjska remains the worst affected region,” government spokesperson Jelko Kacin tweeted on Sunday.
