94 are the people who are officially confirmed to have coronavirus (112 as of now). 89 are the people who are under quarantine in our region because they were out of the country or had contact with sick people but without them being positive for the virus. The quarantine is a preventive measure as to not spread the virus. All people who have returned to Bulgaria from a contaminated region are obliged to be put under a 14-day quarantine.
