Only one new coronavirus infection, no new deaths

The coronavirus epidemic in Slovenia keeps flattening out, with only one new case confirmed on Wednesday out of 1,055 tests conducted, bringing the national case count to 1,449. No new deaths have been reported.

Fresh data from the government show that one more Covid-19 patient was discharged from hospital yesterday, leaving only 52 hospitalised with the novel disease.

Only 13 remained in intensive care units, one fewer than the day before.

Covid-19 has so far claimed 99 lives in Slovenia. Almost 80% of the casualties are care home residents, the newspaper Dnevnik has reported.

Data obtained by the paper from the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ), show that 78 care home residents with Covid-19 have died as of 4 May. Ten of them died in hospital and 68 in the home.

The institute only provided cumulative data, while unofficial data obtained by Dnevnik from those reported by the NIJZ to civil protection teams, show that by 4 May a total of 425 coronavirus infections have been confirmed in 17 old-age facilities, 320 of them were residents and 105 staff.

In six homes infections have been confirmed only in staff.

The figures mean that 22% of the total of confirmed cases in the country as of Monday (1,445) were elderly care home residents, along with the staff the proportion is almost 30%.
