The number of those infected with coronavirus in Slovenia as of 2 p.m. on Sunday was 414, 31 more over the past 24 hours, the Slovenian Institute for Public Health said.
The majority of the cases are in the Ljubljana area and the virus has spread to more than 90 of Slovenia's 212 municipalities.
To date, 13,098 Slovenians have been tested for COVID-19. Health authorities say the epidemic has not peaked yet and that a rise can be expected in the days ahead in the number of those infected as well as new hospitalisations of those seriously ill.
Along with the measures already adopted to contain the epidemic, authorities have confirmed that a decision is likely to be adopted next week under which the people of some municipalities or regions will not be allowed to leave their place of residence in order to prevent the epidemic from spreading.
On Monday, the government could propose that parliament give the army new powers to act along the border while the police would be more engaged in dealing with the epidemic in the interior.
The opposition has voiced strong reservations regarding the proposal.
