Slovenia's National Institute of Public Health said on Wednesday that there was no danger to the health of the population because of the migrant flow for now, although among migrants there have been cases of tuberculosis, hepatitis A, and typhoid, Slovenian Television reported.
After inspecting the Brezice area, where a larger number of migrants are staying, the Institute said there was a risk of contagious diseases spreading among the refugees. Prevalent among the refugees are acute bowel diseases and cold viruses, and there are also skin diseases, scabies and lice.
Nonetheless, there has been no reports either in Slovenia or the other countries through which migrants are passing of contagion, the Institute said.
According to Slovenian police information this morning, a total of 89,789 refugees and migrants entered Slovenia and 63,715 were transported to Austria over the past 12 days.
