SOFIA – Tightening the measures

As Bulgaria reported a total of 346 confirmed coronavirus cases and eight deaths as of Sunday (29 March) with the average age of patients being 66, the head of the national COVID-19 task force, Ventsislav Moutafchiiski, had said that it was a matter of time before Bulgarians leave their homes only if they have a proper declaration.

Moutafchiiski commented on the fact that the streets were full of people despite Bulgaria having declared a state of emergency and taken measures.

Meanwhile, Finance Minister Vladislav Goranov spoke of a 1 billion foreign debt because of the crisis but did not specify what currency he was referring to.
