Bulgaria: 40% of the Deaths in Bulgaria could have been Prevented

Little more than 40 percent of the deaths in Bulgaria could have been prevented in the presence of optimal health care and they would not have happened if there was an efficient health system and quality medical services and technologies, according to Eurostat data analysis. The so-called "preventable death" analysis in the EU in 2016, quoted by Darik.

The EU average for "preventable death" is 33 per cent, and the most deaths that could be prevented are registered in our northern neighbor Romania - nearly 49 per cent or nearly half of the registered deaths there.

According to the analysis, most Bulgarians died during the period due to circulatory diseases - 1 131 cases per 100 00, which is almost 4 times the EU average - about 350 cases per 100 000 people in the EU.

About 110,000 people died in Bulgaria last year.
