This measure was expected to be implemented as of Easter Sunday (April 12). Borissov expressed concern that the low morbidity and mortality of the novel coronavirus in Bulgaria, compared to other countries, brings a sense of reassurance to people.

He once again called on all citizens to follow the measures introduced to prevent the spread of the epidemic, BNR said.
