Slovenia recorded 7,580 new Covid-19 cases, which is a new all-time high, the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ) has reported.

Slovenia recorded 7, 580 new Covid cases on Friday, up from 6,918 on Thursday. The previous high was reached on Tuesday with 7,420 cases, Xinhua news agency reported.

The report comes on Saturday during a three-day vaccination campaign which started on Thursday and during which vaccination centres all over the country are open at least 12 hours a day with no appointment needed.

Health Minister Janez Poklukar had said on Tuesday that Omicron variant represents most new cases.

Although Slovenia has been badly hit by the epidemic, so far only 57 per cent of the country's 2.1 million population has been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

The government has decided against another lockdown in order not to hurt the export-oriented economy, Only citizens who have been vaccinated, have overcome Covid-19 or have recently tested negative are allowed to enter most public spaces. A face mask is required in all public areas.
