CORONAVIRUS The number of infected is still rising: Imported cases are minimal


On Saturday (October 17), the RÚVZ recorded 1,567 confirmed cases of COVID-19 from 10,858 laboratory examinations in its territorial scope. RÚVZ Bardejov, Bratislava, Čadca, Dolný Kubín, Košice, Liptovský Mikuláš, Prešov, Prievidza and Žilina reported a more frequent occurrence. The increased incidence of new cases is recorded by most regional cities. “As a rule, these are actively traced contacts of infected persons, but in larger cities (Bratislava, Košice) there are also sporadic cases, the epidemiological context of which is still intensively investigated by experts,” noted ÚVZ SR.

Epidemiologists often find whole groups of infected people who are in closer contact with the infected person on the basis of one positive test person. “The examination will subsequently show that the entire household or circle of co-workers is infected. This situation occurs in many districts of Slovakia,” it is listed on the ÚVZ SR website.

Epidemiologists are therefore once again calling for caution and consistent hygiene, even in an environment that we commonly perceive as closed and safe. “Let’s honestly follow respiratory hygiene, frequent washing and disinfection of hands, as well as disinfection of areas that you often touch. Let’s not forget to ventilate often,” noted ÚVZ SR.
