As of today, November 4th, all planned admission and operative activity in the medical establishments on the territory of the country will be temporarily suspended. Exceptions are allowed for activities related to transplantation of organs and cells, diagnosis and treatment of patients with oncological and onco hematological diseases, assisted reproduction activities and births, regardless of the method of delivery, rehabilitation activities, long-term treatment and psychiatric care. These measures are stated in an order of the Minister of Health Dr. Stoycho Katsarov, issued yesterday.
The aim is to reduce the pressure on the health system on one hand and on the other hand, it will be possible for unloaded wards to be restructured into COVID units and medical teams to be reassigned to serve patients with COVID-19.
Stricter anti-epidemic measures aiming to reduce the cases of COVID-19 are coming into force from Thursday. The restrictions will affect all spheres of public life, and the health authorities assure that the control will be many times stricter than the one currently in force. All activities that are carried out indoors will be allowed only for people holding the so-called “green certificate”. This document is issued when the vaccination cycle is completed by the immunization centers or the personal doctor. The second option is to present a PCR or antigen test done 48 hours earlier or a document for illness up to a year back in time.
