Coronavirus infections up over the weekend + Covid cases higher than test numbers

By: P.T., STA

A total of 325 new coronavirus infections were confirmed in Slovenia over the weekend, which is a 56% weekly increase.

No Covid patient has died since Friday, the Health Ministry said. Latest reports from hospitals show that 36 Covid patients were at regular Covid wards and five in intensive care during the weekend. The 7-day average case count is at 398 and the 14-day incidence per 100,000 of the population at 227.

Expert: Covid cases higher than test numbers

Slovenia has seen an increase in the number of coronavirus cases recently, yet the official figures have remained relatively low, with only 325 new infections confirmed over the weekend, but infectologist Mateja Logar said the actual number of infections is likely three to four times higher. Logar, who used to head a government-appointed task force for coping with the pandemic, said this was due to scaled-back testing and advises easier access to testing.
