U.S. Embassy Health Alert: Covid-19 update

Dear American Citizen in Slovenia:

Medical situation in Slovenia (as of 6 May):

  • The Slovenian government released the results of a nationwide antibody study in which 3.1% of participants tested positive for antibodies indicating prior exposure to the novel coronavirus.  Based on the study, researchers say with 95% certainty that 2-4% of the population had an immune response to Covid-19, far less than the 60-80% immunity rate believed to be needed to prevent renewed spread of the virus.
  • Yesterday there were three additional confirmed cases, for a cumulative total of 1,448.
  • There was one additional fatality yesterday, bringing the total to 99.
  • The number who are currently hospitalized decreased by three to 53 persons, of whom 14 are in intensive care.
