The infected are people who have not traveled. The most affected is the age of active people - between 30 and 40 years, the other more affected group is between 50 and 60 years old. The variant has infected three children aged 1, 2, and 3 years. The distribution of the virus among the older population is relatively even, explained Prof. Hristova.

The children are not spared. Not only can they transmit the infection, but they can also get sick, of course in a low percentage of severity, but there is also hospitalization of children, said Hristova.

The epidemiological characteristics from Regional Health Inspectorates continue to be collected.

A very big wave is set to come, warned the director of the Center for Infectious and Parasitic Diseases and expressed hope that the peak will be by the end of February.

Prof. Hristova said that the flu has also advanced in the country.
