The highly virulent variants of the SARS-Cov-2 virus known as the UK and South African strains have not been detected in Slovenia so far, Miroslav Petrovec, the head of the Institute of Microbiology, told the press.
The Institute of Microbiology processes roughly half of all PCR tests done in the country. “We have not detected the UK strain nor the second problematic strain – the South African strain. We have not detected either of the genotypes in the portion [of tests] that we are analysing. This is very good news,” he said.
