New daily coronavirus case count down to 585 on Sunday


Ljubljana - The number of new coronavirus cases in Slovenia continued to drop both in daily and weekly comparisons on Sunday, when 585 new infections were confirmed. Just over 18,240 cases are still active, show the latest data by the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ).

The 14-day incidence per 100,000 population declined by 9 to 865 and the 7-day rolling average of new daily cases decreased by 13 to 1,209.

While the overall number of cases continues to decline - it was down by 14% on a weekly basis - the data tracker Covid-19 Sledilnik warns that the figures are rising among the oldest age groups, which are at highest risk of severe illness and death.

The number of Covid-19 patients in hospital declined by five to 696 this morning, with the number of ICU patients down by one to 215. Ten patients with Covid-19 died, government data show.
