Bulgaria is among the EU countries with the lowest confidence in its national government when it comes to coping with the pandemic. With 2.7 points (out of 10 possible) Bulgaria ranks among Poland (2.1), Croatia (2.5) and the Czech Republic (2.9). This is seen in a study by the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound), called "Life, Work and Covid-19", quoted by BGNES.

Bulgaria is the country in the EU where people are most reluctant to get vaccinated, the study also shows. 61% of polled Bulgarians say that they would probably not get vaccinated. 33% of Bulgarians show firm support for vaccination.
