PCR and Ag testing

5,054 people were positively diagnosed with the coronavirus disease in Slovakia on November 28, the total number increased to 673,015.

The laboratories have carried out a total of 4,563,162 PCR tests, 13,582 of which were carried out on November 28.

They also performed 37,257 new antigen tests, 1,751 were positive. The total number of antigen tests amounted to 40,141,306 and 486,752 in total were positive.

Death toll and hospitalisations

Altogether 14,341 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 increased by 6 to 3,219 people.

COVID-19 vaccination uptake in Slovakia

Altogether 2,631,895 people have received their first Covid vaccine shot, and 2,468,598 have been fully vaccinated as of November 28.
