Slovenia becomes first European country to call official end to coronavirus epidemic

Slovenia becomes first European country to call official end to coronavirus epidemic, by Adam Forrest.

Slovenia has become the first European country to declare an official end to its coronavirus epidemic, as it lifts some of the border controls put in place during the outbreak.

The nation’s government believes the disease has been brought under control after health authorities confirmed fewer than seven new coronavirus cases each day for the past two weeks. …

People now arriving in Slovenia from other European Union states will no longer be obliged to go into a quarantine for at least seven days, as had been the case from early April.

A quarantine of at least 14 days will remain in place for people from non-EU states, except for some exemptions including diplomats and people transporting cargo.
