We are witnessing great differences in the fourteen-day morbidity rate in different Bulgarian districts. That is why we are not going to impose nationwide restrictions, Bulgaria’s Minister of Health Professor Asena Serbezova said for Nova TV.

 Highest morbidity rates are reported in Sofia, Blagoevgrad, Pernik, Stara Zagora and Burgas districts, where new anti-epidemic measures are to be introduced in five days. Our decision to impose restrictions is not only based on the occupancy rate of intensive care beds. We also take into account other factors such as the age groups affected by the virus, the outpatient treatment of Covid-19 and the level of severity of the virus. So far, we are not planning to abolish the green certificate issued to people with antibodies, Minister Serbezova added.

As of February 1, 2022, green certificates will be valid for 9 months, which is in line with the recommendations of the European Commission.
