The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MTI) wrote that due to the spread of the new strain of the virus, the government is urging employers to allow them to work from home where possible.
According to the head of the ministry, smaller groups should be created so that employees do not mix and thus get as little work as possible. The Slovenian government fears that a large number of people will be quarantined due to the massive spread of the epidemic, which could paralyze the country’s economic life. For this reason, the period of compulsory official dismissal was also shortened from ten days to seven days.
The minister also called on citizens to take advantage of the vaccination working days from January 13 to 15, when they can take one dose of one of the vaccines across the country from morning to evening without reservation.
By Tuesday, 5,164 new coronavirus infections had been recorded in the country and three patients had died. The hospital accommodates 553 patients, 160 of whom are in the intensive care unit. In the country of more than 2 million people, 1,254,067 people have been vaccinated so far, 1,195,655 of whom have taken both doses.
In neighboring Croatia, just over four million have been identified, 7,956 new coronavirus infections have been identified in the past 24 hours, and 38 have died of COVID-19 disease caused by the virus. The hospital accommodates 1,824 patients, 233 of whom need a ventilator. To date, 2,270,667 people have been vaccinated in the country, of whom 2,167,171 have already received the second dose.
In order to slow the spread of the coronavirus epidemic, further tightening was imposed in Croatia from midnight on Monday: restrictions on public gatherings and stricter monitoring of compliance with epidemiological measures.
