Slovenia is first EU nation to announce official end of coronavirus epidemic


Slovenia has beaten other EU nations to become the first country in Europe to announce a ‘taming’ of the coronavirus epidemic.

The quarantine, however, remains in place for non-EU citizens except for diplomats and heavy transport workers.

Slovenia’s prime minister, Janez Jansa, told lawmakers on Thursday: “Slovenia has tamed the epidemic over the past two months … Today Slovenia has the best epidemiologic picture in Europe.”
