The newly registered unemployed persons in Bulgaria have reached just over 218,000 for the period from February 3 to July 12. This is shown by the latest data of the National Statistical Institute and the Employment Agency from the special monitoring of the labour market due to the crisis with Covid-19. 
During the same period, nearly 122,000 people registered with the employment offices started a new job. In half of the districts in the country, including Sofia, the newly registered in the employment offices are more than the ones who found new jobs.
