In front of cabinet ministers and mayors, Bulgaria's Prime Minister Boyko Borissov commented on the protest of the restaurateurs against the restrictive measures taking place in Sofia today. They demand that restaurants be allowed to reopen on February 1. The Prime Minister said that currently the indicators for the spread of the coronavirus in the country are the best, BTA reported.

"Instead of rejoicing, we will now look for a way to boost the pandemic again and then we will need to close everything, as in other countries. Should we do it? .. We understand them too. That is why both the Ministry of Social Affairs and the Ministry of Economy have taken so many support measures. 2 billion, plus the extra money for retirees, goes over 3 billion. Huge amounts of money," the prime minister commented.
