We have introduced new anti-epidemic measures in Bulgaria because of the high mortality rate and the rapid increase in the number of hospitalized patients, said this country’s caretaker Minister of Health Stoycho Katsarov. Four people out of every 100 diagnosed with Covid-19 die, said Minister Katsarov in an interview for bTV. 

In his words, the new restrictions that will come into force on September 7 are effective and as least intrusive as possible. Most of the measures may lapse if the staff and the visitors of a certain catering establishment possess a Green Certificate.
