Currently, the national Covid-19 morbidity rate is 74.42 per 100 000 population on a 14-day basis, up from 46.12 per 100 000 a week ago.
Four weeks ago, on June 6, the national Covid-19 morbidity rate was 35.32 per 100 000 population on a fortnightly basis.
Three out of the 28 districts in Bulgaria are above the threshold to be classified as yellow zones, meaning a rate between 100 and 249.9 per 100 000 population: Sofia city (142.46), Varna (109.76) and Bourgas (100.31).
In the past week, the deaths of 11 people in Bulgaria who had tested positive for Covid-19 were registered, bringing the country’s death toll linked to the disease to 37 257. This is the lowest Covid-19 death toll in a week in Bulgaria since 2022 began.
