Zagreb, 6 May 2020 (Hina/MIA) — Over the past 24 hours in Slovenia, three new COVID-19 cases were reported and one patient died, the Slovenian government said Wednesday, as the first serological testing results revealed only 3.1% of the population was infected.
Currently, 53 COVID-19 patients are receiving hospital treatment, including 14 in intensive care units. There have been two more recoveries in the last 24 hours, which puts the total number of recoveries at 247.
In the last 24 hours, 1,449 tests for the coronavirus were conducted and 58,923 in total have been conducted so far. A total of 1,448 cases of the infection have been confirmed and 99 people have died since the start of the epidemic.
Serological testing, conducted on a representative sample over the last two weeks, shows that 3.1% of those tested have developed antibodies to COVID-19, but that does not guarantee they have developed a more lasting immunity to the disease as that immunity was not developed earlier by people infected with other, well-known types of the coronavirus.
