    Emil Radev: It is high time to develop a European anticorruption strategy

    The notion that Bulgaria has lost the support of Brussels is being propagated on purpose. Disinformation in Europe is spreading rapidly, especially after the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic Reforms constitute a process, and not a single action - therefore, the progress which is reported for our country is accepted as an assessment for a consistent and responsible work, the MEP said in an interview with Monitor News Agency.

    Andrey Kovatchev: A unified health safety protocol for Covid-19 is needed

    The European Commission insists from the beginning of the pandemic that there must be a common European health safety protocol. It should include common criteria for indicating when restrictions should enter into force and of what type they should be. It is better to have a European approach, and that is the reason I inquired with the EC whether it has requested from the Member States to unite around a common health safety protocol,MEP Andrey Kovatchev says in an interview with Monitor news agency..

  • Prof. Mihail Konstantinov: Experts say most of us will go through Covid-19

    Prof. Mihail Konstantinov: Experts say most of us will go through Covid-19

    This virus is pretty unique in its behaviour, perhaps because it was man-made to a certain extent. Or at least that is what some Nobel Prize laureates believe. We, the optimists, got it wrong. Not that extreme pessimist turned out to be right either. Now we are learning to live with the virus. Thankfully, it has gotten less vicious. The big unknown is what will happen in the autumn and the winter, when regular seasonal viruses arrive.

    Andrey Novakov: There is no greater challenge to the EU than the pandemic

    The fight over the Mobility Package is a very long one and it is too early to tell whether it has been won or lost. When it is all said and done, it will most likely be neither of those things because we are talking about a compromise. What we need to do is get as good law provisions as possible. It is clear that the industry is going to undergo reforms. So we can safely say that this is among the bad periods we have had in this fight, but it is not the last, the MEP said in an interview to Monitor.

  • Prof. Mihail Konstantinov: Decrease in the number of new Covid-19 patients will come in late April

    Prof. Mihail Konstantinov: Decrease in the number of new Covid-19 patients will come in late April

    Bulgaria compares favourably to other European countries in tackling coronavirus spread. We are handling the situation two to four times better than the global average. The number of infections is two times lower, while the number of deaths is four times lower as ratios per one million people. Bulgarians are a pretty disciplined nation and seem to grasp the seriousness of the situation. We have turned out to be much more disciplined than the Italians and the Spanish, who underestimated the threat.
