«It looks like this is an imported case, it seems that the person was infected in Morocco», Maja Socan from the National Institute of Public Health said during the same news conference.

«Some days have passed since the patient has returned to Slovenia ... so we have to identify who the person was in contact with ... to prevent the spread of the infection», she added.
