Meanwhile, the Ljubljana community health centre said a physiotherapist employed in its Ĺ entvid unit tested positive for the virus on Sunday.

The workmates she had been in contact with have been ordered to self-isolate and the patients she had been in contact with had been told to monitor their health condition as the physiotherapist carried personal protective equipment in her contact with the patients.
