Partial lockdown warning as Slovenia’s Covid situation worsens

By: J.S., STA

Slovenia’s epidemiological status is poor as the country’s heads towards the worst situation since the start of the epidemic, said Health Minister Janez Poklukar, adding that if the trend is not reversed, he would propose at least a partial lockdown.

This means that the number of Covid-19 patients in intensive care rises to 160-180, the minister said, announcing that some Covid restrictions were being stepped up. Regular coronavirus testing in all hospitals and social care institutions will be put in place, and employees who have not been vaccinated or have not recovered from Covid-19 will have to get tested every 48 hours, whereas students will be tested twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays.
