“Bulgaria is beginning to climb another Covid-19 wave and postponing vaccination will not be a good thing,” Prof. Georgi Momekov, chairman of the Bulgarian Pharmaceutical Scientific Society said in a comment regarding the Health Ministry’s campaign on the advantages of vaccination. In Prof. Momekov’s words, scientific data show that a booster dose of vaccine reduces the risk of hospitalization and death. He stated that around 30% of the population in Bulgaria is vaccinated.

In connection with the growing number of Covid-19 infections the Ministry of Health is recommending avoiding crowded places and wearing masks in indoor public places. People with symptoms typical of coronavirus should isolate and consult a doctor.
