Sofia Municipality has a Covid-19 morbidity rate of 255.92 per 100,000 population on a 14-day basis. Red zone classification means a fortnightly morbidity rate of between 250 and 499.9 per 100,000 population.

From June 28 to July 14, the city of Sofia was classified as a yellow zone, implying a morbidity rate of between 100 and 249.9 per 100,000 population on a fortnightly basis.

According to the July 15 update, 19 of the 28 districts in Bulgaria are yellow zones: Blagoevgrad, Bourgas, Varna, Vratsa, Gabrovo, Dobrich, Kyustendil, Lovech, Montana, Pernik, Plovdiv, Razgrad, Silistra, Sliven, Smolyan, Sofia district ( unlike the city of Sofia), Stara Zagora, Haskovo and Yambol.

The remaining eight counties are green zones, meaning a 14-day morbidity rate of less than 100 per 100,000 people.

Bulgaria‘s national Covid-19 morbidity rate is 152.17 per 100,000 population on a 14-day basis, down from 65.54 per 100,000 earlier this month.
