PCR and Ag testing

8,523 people were positively diagnosed with the coronavirus disease in Slovakia on December 8, the total number increased to 757,492.

The laboratories have carried out a total of 4,805,554 PCR tests, 22,238 of which were carried out on December 8.

They also performed 25,999 new antigen tests, 1,044 were positive. The total number of antigen tests amounted to 40,600,761 and 507,564 in total were positive.

Death toll and hospitalisations

Altogether 15,179 people have died, according to the data from the National Health Information Centre.

The Health Ministry will no longer report the number of inactive cases, as this data was calculated by an estimation based on the assumption that 14 days after one tests positive or shows the first symptoms of the disease, they cease to be positive and are therefore not infectious.

The number of people in hospitals is 3,419 people.

COVID-19 vaccination uptake in Slovakia

Altogether 2,686,274 people have received their first Covid vaccine shot, and 2,486,452 have been fully vaccinated as of December 8.

To achieve herd immunity in Slovakia, the estimate is that at least 4.6 million people (85 percent of the population) have to be vaccinated.
