The probability of a second peak of Covid-19 is real. The pandemic is steady, depending on level of compliance with anti-epidemic measures.

We are currently seeing the effect of lifting the restrictions after the initial strict measures, Prof. Hristo Naydenski, head of the Department of Infectious Microbiology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences – BAS, has told the BNR.

Maybe at the end of the year, if a vaccine was found, governments would ease restrictions, the scientist said. Prof. Naydenski explained that due to different evaluation criteria and in order not to stop the financing of other projects, the project for Bulgarian vaccine against coronavirus will not receive money from the Research Fund but will be financed from the reserve funds of BAS.
