By June, Bulgaria should receive 1.5 million doses of Covid vaccines Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna which will suffice for 750,000 people, said for bTV Assoc. Prof. Svetlana Velizarova, head of the Children's Clinic in the Saint Sophia lung hospital. According to her, the amount is not encouraging, because we will not be able to meet the autumn-winter season vaccinated. 

According to her, 2 million people have already been exposed to the virus, so the next wave will be weaker. 

"We can't stay closed forever," the doctor said, explaining that even with the measures loosened, the incidence of Covid-19 would increase as the infection was transmitted by airborne droplets. "But this does not mean extending the lockdown," Assoc. Prof. Svetlana Velizarova concluded.
