Govt extends ban on gatherings, night clubs
The Government Communication Office said the latest extension was based on the recommendation of the group of experts advising the government on Covid-19.
The group made the recommendation after considering the country's epidemiological status, finding socialising as the key source of transmission.
The group's head Bojana Beović told reporters today that the stringent ban on socialising and night clubs appeared to be effective.
Slovenia saw the number of daily infections spike on Tuesday to 31, a one month high, with another 29 recorded on Wednesday, which public health officials blamed on cases imported from Croatia, mostly by young people attending parties there.
The country's case count reached 2,332 by Wednesday midnight, of which 193 are active cases.
