Minister Denkov’s order follows the order of Bulgaria’s caretaker Minister of Health Stoycho Katsarov, which reads that all schools in a given municipality must shift to distance learning if coronavirus morbidity exceeds 750 new cases per 100,000 people.

Six Bulgarian districts-Sofia, Vidin, Gabrovo, Kyustendil, Montana and Pernik are to shift to online learning as of October 21, this country’s Ministry of Education and Science announced on its website.
