Government extends epidemic emergency by 3 monthsEuropost , Sofia
The government has extended the state of epidemic emergency declared in the country by three months, Health Minister Stoycho Katsarov told a news briefing at the Council of Ministers on Wednesday.
The reason is that the country is entering a new epidemic wave with an increase in infections and hospital admissions.
The average duration of a pandemic wave, such as the ones observed over the past year, is about two – two and a half months. A complicating factor is the existing uncertainty surrounding the question how much longer the caretaker government will have to stay in place, Katsarov noted.
