By: P.T., STA

The Italian Army plans to help Slovenia with up to 30 doctors and nurses as the country battles an increasing number of Covid-19 patients.

The Italian Army healthcare workers will be joining the medical teams of the Slovenian Armed Forces, who started helping hospitals at the beginning of the week, after Slovenian Defence Minister Matej Tonin asked his Italian counterpart Lorenzo Guerini for assistance with medical staff. According to the ministry, Guerini said he understood the situation in Slovenia, as Italy had had a similar experience. Tonin later told the press that he was hopeful the Italian health workers would arrive in Slovenia soon. The aid agreement covers the period until the end of the year, he added.
