U.S. Steel confirmed the infected person is their employee, citing the report of the regional health authorities, the Korzar daily wrote.

The regional health authority told the company that the man contracted the virus during his holiday to France. He did not go to work after his holiday and thus did not threaten the health of U.S. Steel employees, the company's spokesperson Ján Bača told Korzar.

The total number of confirmed coronavirus cases has thus risen to seven.
