Bulgaria to introduce more stringent measures against the spread of Covid-19 if necessary

Currently, Bulgaria’s health system is not under pressure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the country’s Chief State Health Inspector Associate Professor Angel Kunchev said for the BNR.

On 19 July, directors of large Bulgarian hospitals will meet with Bulgaria's health authorities to discuss Covid-19 hospital bed availability. They want to avoid reaching the levels of bed occupancy during previous coronavirus waves, because the new Omicron variants cause less sever disease, Angel Kunchev said. In his words, the situation is dynamic and more stringent measures against the spread of Covid-19 will be introduced at a regional level, if necessary.

According to Bulgaria’s Chief State Health Inspector, interest in getting Covid-19 vaccines has risen. Nearly 30% of the population is immunized, which is close to the vaccination rates in neighboring countries.
