“We are extending the emergency epidemic situation until the end of July,” announced Health Minister Kiril Ananiev at an extraordinary briefing of the National Crisis Headquarters.

Mass control of the observance of the anti-epidemic measures is being reinforced. Mass events are being brought down to a minimum, because such events are followed by the vigorous spread of the coronavirus. A list of countries from the EU, as well as third countries, is to be made public, whose citizens will be able to enter Bulgaria with and without quarantine.

A Bulgarian team is very close to developing coronavirus medication. Clinical tests of the medicine, called Ivermectin, were started in May, the National Crisis Headquarters announced.
