Bulgaria: Bulgarian Health Minister in Resignation: We Cope with Third Wave of Covid Infection

The order for the dissolution of the NOHQ is not from now, the decision was taken on February 26, stated Health Minister Kostadin Angelov. Let us not politicize this step, because healthcare system can't be a punching bag for political jugglers. It makes perfect sense to disband this Headquarters after the end of this government’s term of office.

We have reversed the morbidity trend in terms of the ratio between cured-newly infected, with over 3,000 cured people more, health minister in resignation Kostadin Angelov said during a briefing.

Bulgaria ranks 11th by morbidity in Europe and 4th on the Balkan Peninsula in the last 14 days. In terms of mortality, we are 2nd in the EU after Hungary, and again 2nd on the Balkans, after North Macedonia, added Chief Health Inspector Assoc. Prof. Angel Kunchev.

The current trend is towards decline in morbidity is taking we are drawing nearer to the end of the third wave of infection.

Lower morbidity, but higher mortality. For the EU, there has been a slight decrease in new cases.

Bulgaria will receive 324,090 doses of Pfizer vaccine in April, he reminded.
