The virus was confirmed to have spread to Slovakia on 6 March 2020 when Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini announced that a 52-year-old man was infected. He had not traveled anywhere but his son had traveled to Venice in Italy, and it was believed that his son was the first Slovak to be which was later confirmed.
Three cases were then confirmed, including the man's son and wife. During the next few days, COVID-19 cases went up to 21 out of 832 tested.
