Slovenia’s Omicron count increased to ten by Monday from the first four cases of the new variant reported the day earlier.
The National Institute of Public Health said the cases were in two separate clusters including persons who arrived from Sweden and the UAE and secondary transmissions. The Covid-19 advisory group is debating potential new measures in response to the development. This was as all coronavirus cases kept falling with 1,526 reported for Tuesday to push the 14-day incidence per 100,000 below 1,000. Eight Covid-19 patients died with 804 now in hospitals, including 231 in intensive care.
