LJUBLJANA – Biggest crisis since independence

Slovenia’s new Prime Minister, Janez Janša, said on Thursday that the outbreak is the biggest crisis since Slovenia declared its independence. There were 96 confirmed coronavirus cases as of yesterday.

Slovenia has announced that all education facilities will be closed down as of next week for an indefinite period. Janša added that he agreed with doctor recommendations that “all public life” should be on lockdown and that stricter measures should be introduced.

Italian trucks have been stopped at the border but the problem is that more than 80% of vegetables come from Italy. 

Slovenia’s Macroeconomic analysis office (UMAR) halved an earlier estimate of GDP growth from last autumn’s 3% to just 1.5%.

Slovenian Bishops decided to stop all religious activities except funerals that will go according to strict instructions. (Željko Trkanjec | EURACTIV.hr)
