Bulgaria’s national Covid-19 morbidity rate has risen to 102.55 per 100 000 population on a 14-day basis, putting the country above the threshold to be classified as a yellow zone, according to the July 8 report by the unified information portal.
Pernik has become the fifth district to be reclassified from a green to a yellow zone, with a morbidity rate of 102.52 per 100 000 population on a 14-day basis.
The other yellow zone districts are Sofia city (186.09), Bourgas (151.21), Varna (155.78) and Vratsa (111.26).
Dobrich, at 98.02, and Sofia district – as distinct from Sofia city – at 99.31, are close to the threshold. Classification as a yellow zone means a fortnightly morbidity rate between 100 and 249.9 per 100 000 population.
Of 5149 tests done in the past day, 842 – about 16.35 per cent – proved positive.
There are 440 patients with Covid-19 in hospital in Bulgaria, 71 more than when the week began, with 31 in intensive care, an increase of five compared with Monday’s figure.
