LJUBLJANA, Slovenia — Slovenia says 29 people have died from COVID-19 in the past 24 hours in the highest daily death toll since the start of the outbreak.

Authorities on Wednesday said new daily infections with the new coronavirus have reached 2,027 in the small country of 2 million after falling briefly in the past days.

Slovenia has introduced an overnight curfew and a set of other restrictions to combat the surge. Populist Prime Minister Janez Jansa has said the country is facing at least a month of “tough battle.”

Also Wednesday, authorities said Slovenia’s Environment Minister Anton Vizjak has tested positive on the virus. Previously Slovenia’s Foreign Minister Anze Logar also has confirmed he was positive.
