Due to the increased number of COVID-19 infected people in Bulgaria the Minister of Health has issued a new order with stricter anti-epidemic measures.
Dixie Jazz Fest, which was supposed to start tonight in Veliko Tarnovo, has been cancelled and will not take place. This is necessary due to the decision of the regional crisis headquarters, which made its recommendations to the city government to cancel all mass events by July 31.
The emergency epidemic situation is Bulgaria will be extended for another 15 days and will end on July 1st. The emergency epidemic situation was supposed to end on June 14th but the prime minister and staff have decided to extend it until the end of the month. The decision comes after a significant increase in the number of newly infected since the end of last week due to the emergence of several new outbreaks in recent days in Dospat, Surnitsa and Shumen.
