Enhanced checks on compliance with the physical distancing measures are under way in Sofia. All resources of the Sofia police will control the observance of the bans on the gathering of people in one place and walks in parks and urban gardens. The measures are implemented jointly between Sofia Municipality and the Sofia Police Directorate. 

"The spring and sunny weather create the misleading sensation that everything is over. Experts' predictions show that the next days are extremely risky," Sofia Mayor Yordanka Fandakova said.
