Slovenia, LJUBLJANA – The number of COVID-19 cases in Slovenia has recently increased, but official figures are relatively low, with only 325 fresh infections diagnosed over the weekend. According to infectologist Mateja Logar, the true number is three to four times higher. Logar previously led a government-appointed task force to combat the pandemic, believes this is due to insufficient testing, and advocates for increased access to testing.
