Slovenian health authorities reported just seven new coronavirus infections for Sunday, the smallest increase since 8 March, for a total of 1,212 nationwide. The number of fatalities rose by two to 55.
The small increase in infections indicates the epidemic is plateauing in Slovenia, which is also borne out by hospital statistics.
There were 95 Covid-19 patients in hospital yesterday, compared to a late-March peak of nearly 120. The number of intensive care cases declined by one to 34; the peak was 37 on 10 April.
However, the moderate increase in infections is also strongly affected by the weekly pace as the number of tests at the weekend is usually half the weekday total.
