PM Janez Janša commented on the state of the epidemic following Friday's evaluation meeting by saying many of the restrictions in place in Slovenia and the EU "will remain in place in the foreseeable future". Janša said the government's measures were also based on a very serious situation in the neighbourhood and the "very negative experience of countries that are battling repeated outbreaks".

 

A tweet by the government meanwhile showed there are no plans to lift the movement and gatherings ban for the May holidays, meaning people will no be able to leave their municipality. "The epidemic is still simmering and data from comprehensive random population testing is not in yet," the explanation reads.
