The number of people infected with COVID-19 in Bulgaria is probably several times higher than the officially registered. Only two out of all 11 COVID-19 cases are officially registered. That is why we must strictly follow the principle of physical distancing, the head of the National Crisis Headquarters Major General Ventsislav Mutafchiyski said. Once the number of infected people stops growing, we will report to the Bulgarian government that extraordinary measures can become less stringent, Professor Mutafchiyski added. Two questionable tests for COVID-19 of Bulgarian MPs will be repeated. More than 200 policemen have been already tested for coronavirus and no cases of COVID-19 have been found yet. The number of Bulgarian medics infected with the new coronavirus continues to rise, Ventsislav Mutafchiyski went on to say.
