SOFIA – Paying debts in times of crisis?

Employers organisations insisted during a meeting with Bulgarian President Rumen Radev that the state should pay immediately all its pending debts to companies so that they could have fresh money during the COVID-19 crisis.

“We need complex measures to keep the economy “healthy” after COVID-19″, the president said.

On Monday, authorities reported 62 COVID-19 cases in Bulgaria, with one of those affected being a nine-year-old English child who has been spending her ski vacation there.

The child’s uncle, who is also in Bulgaria, was exposed to the infection before coming with his COVID-19-infected sister.

Last Friday, Bulgaria’s parliament declared a ‘state of emergency’,  which will be effective until 13 April. (Krassen Nikolov |
