Prime Minister Boyko Borissov opposes a new complete lockdown of the country because of the spread of Covid-19, although there is serious pressure on the health-care system. According to him, restrictions should not be excessive, as this country needs functioning economy. The Prime Minister said that at a meeting with the National Headquarters before posting a message in social networks.

"I know that our health care system has been fighting heroically. That is why every day we have 1200-1300 recovered patients… Indeed, the big problem is with people with concomitant diseases and the elderly. I was hit very hard myself," Borissov said, pointing out that the vast majority of people were not seriously affected by the virus.

The Prime Minister pointed out that everything that the government did for the economy, the market, the rise of incomes could be done only in the conditions of working economy.
