Slovenia has announced the end of the coronavirus epidemic in the country since June 16. The Ministry of Health stressed that, despite this, some restrictions will continue to apply.
According to the agency, over the past day, 112 cases of COVID-19 infection were detected in the European country, and two deaths from infection were also registered. There are 122 patients in hospitals, 40 of which are in intensive care units. More than 769 thousand people received one component of the vaccine, and more than 551 thousand were fully vaccinated. In total, the population of Slovenia is two million people.
“Vaccination remains a key control measure for the epidemic. The future of the EU is based on solidarity and cooperation with common values and goals of vaccination,” the agency quotes the head of the Ministry of Health, Janez Poklucar. In Slovenia, there is still a requirement to wear masks indoors, to observe the social distance, not to exceed the permissible number of people in the room.
Earlier, Mary Ramsay, head of immunization at Public Health England, predicted years of wearing masks and keeping a distance. According to the epidemiologist, these measures also do not have a negative impact on the economy, unlike more stringent restrictions like lockdowns.
