    STA, 5 March 2020 - A second case of novel coronavirus infection in Slovenia was confirmed Thursday, Health Minister Aleš Šabeder said, with the person having been in contact with the first patient, who had been detected on Wednesday.

    Šabeder said as the health authorities called a press conference to speak about the first case that they had just been informed about a second case, adding that the second patient had been in contact with the first one.

    The authorities are rushing to identify other persons who have been in contact with the man who was confirmed as the first COVID-19 case in Slovenia yesterday. The Ljubljana physician who attended to the patient has already been isolated.

        Apparently Florida state has not changed their testing criteria to the new US federal criteria, which is testing on demand.

        Investigations of PUI for COVID-19

        Clinical Features Risk Criteria
        Fever1or signs/symptoms of lower respiratory illness (e.g., cough or shortness of breath) AND Any person, including health care workers2, who has had close contact3 with a laboratory-confirmed4 COVID-19 patient within 14 days of symptom onset
        Fever1and signs/symptoms of a lower respiratory illness (e.g., cough or shortness of breath) AND A history of travel from an affected geographic area with sustained community transmission5 within 14 days of symptom onset
        Fever1 with severe acute lower respiratory illness (e.g., pneumonia, ARDS) requiring hospitalization and without alternative explanatory diagnosis (e.g., influenza)6 AND No source of exposure has been identified
        1. Fever may be subjective or confirmed.
        2. For health care personnel, testing may be considered if there has been exposure to a person with suspected COVID-19 without laboratory confirmation
        3. Close contact is defined as:
          • being within approximately 6 feet (2 meters) of a COVID-19 case for a prolonged period of time; close contact can occur while caring for, living with, visiting, or sharing a health care waiting area or room with a COVID-19 case
            OR
          • having direct contact with infectious secretions of a COVID-19 case (e.g., being coughed on)

          If such contact occurs while not wearing recommended personal protective equipment or PPE (e.g., gowns, gloves, NIOSH-certified disposable N95 respirator, eye protection), criteria for PUI consideration are met.

          The information came in about a sixth person testing positive for the Coronavirus in Slovenia. Details are not available yet, but the report said it was a younger man from the Štajersko region, in the north-east tested positive for Coronavirus in Slovenia. Schools and universities remain open until further notice despite the rising number of confirmed cases with Coronavirus in Slovenia.

          Statements to the press have been delivered by the State Secretary at the Ministry of Health, Simona Repar Bornšek, and Nina Pirnat, Director of the National Institute of Public Health due to more confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Slovenia.

          A further two infected with Coronavirus in Slovenia were a man and a woman who had traveled in Italy where they are presumed to have contracted the virus, Nina Pirnat, director of the National Public Health Institute, told the media yesterday after they confirmed more cases with Coronavirus in Slovenia.

              Officials have reported an 8th case of coronavirus in Slovenia.
              The first five cases were reported in Ljubljana, the 6th and 7th in Maribor, and the 8th in Metlika. All the infections originate from travel abroad. Health Minister Šabeder says closing the country's borders will not stop the spread of the virus.
              Meanwhile tourism and hotel workers say the situation is serious, with many hotels recording cancellations. Other companies whose businesses are also being affected by the outbreak, are calling on government to introduce tax exemptions and sick pay subsidies.

                    LJUBLJANA (Reuters) - Slovenia will start health checks along the border with Italy and at Ljubljana airport to stem the spread of coronavirus and will spend one billion euros to help companies likely to suffer a loss of business, officials said on Monday.

                    Health Minister Ales Sabeder said that from Tuesday the southeastern European country would also prohibit all indoor events for more than 100 people. It had banned indoor events with over 500 people on Saturday evening.

                    Sabeder told a news conference that major sports events, like World Cup skiing and ski jumping competitions, will be held without any spectators.

                    So far Slovenia has confirmed 23 cases of coronavirus and tested about 1,230 people. Its western border is with Italy, which has suffered one of the world’s most severe coronavirus outbreaks with 366 dead as of Sunday.
