Slovenia adds 3,568 more cases to its coronavirus total


Ljubljana - The number of confirmed active coronavirus cases in Slovenia has increased to almost 40,000 after 3,568 more cases were confirmed on Wednesday, as Covid hospitalisations passed 900 with more than 200 patients now in intensive care, official figures show.

Data released by the government show 920 Covid-19 patients being treated in hospitals this morning, 31 more than yesterday, as ICU cases rose by 21 to 212 after ten more Covid patients lost their lives yesterday.

The National Institute of Public Health estimates that 39,949 people in the country are now actively infected with SARS-CoV-2.

The daily number of infections was down by 21% from the record tally the same day a week ago, hence the seven-day case count average dropped by 134 from the day before to 3,188, but the 14-day incidence per 100,000 rose by 45 to 1,894.

Just over 39% of the PCR tests came back positive yesterday.
