Bulgaria to Reimpose Tight Coronavirus Restrictions

November 23, 2020

SOFIA, Bulgaria — In the wake of a recent spike in coronavirus cases in Bulgaria, the country’s health minister is proposing tight restrictions to be reimposed on all educational and cultural institutions, restaurants and sport events.

Minister Kostadin Angelov will propose to the government to approve the new measures as of Friday. He will also seek an extension of the declared epidemic emergency by 4 months — until March 2021.

The proposed measures include suspension of in-person classes at schools, internships for graduate students, attendance of kindergartens, nurseries and extracurricular activities. A ban will be reimposed on all sporting events, conferences, competitions and private parties and group travel. Cinemas, theaters, bars and cafeterias will be closed, too. Restaurants can operate only for home deliveries. All non-food shops, including malls, will have to close except of pharmacies, post and bank offices.

The Minister said that the healthcare system is under growing pressure as hospitals are struggling to deal with the growing tide of patients.
