By: P.T., STA

Slovenia reported 451 new coronavirus cases on Saturday from 2,611 PCR tests for a positivity rate of 17.3%, down from 20.1% a week ago and 19.5% on Friday, fresh official data showed.

An additional seven Covid-19 patients died, bringing the death toll to 3,843. A total of 5,466 rapid antigen tests were also performed. The 7-day average of new cases increased by six to 769. Hospitalisations rose by 16 to 529 after 16 patients were discharged and the total of those in intensive care dropped by two to 93. If the current speed of vaccine deployment is not stepped up, Slovenia will not succeed in vaccinating 70% of the population by summer, Bojana Beović, former head of the government’s Covid-19 task force and new president of the Medical Chamber, told the STA.
