The number of districts in Bulgaria that are dark red Covid-19 zones, which means a morbidity rate of 500 or more out of 100,000 residents on a 14-day basis, has increased to 11 after Stara Zagora and Yambol crossed the threshold, according to the October 15th update from the National Center for Infectious and Parasitic Diseases (NCIPD).

The other nine districts of the dark red zone (colored brown on the NCIPD map) are Sofia City, Sofia District, Gabrovo, Vidin, Kyustendil, Montana, Pernik, Sliven, and Varna.

Fourteen districts are Covid-19 red zones, which means a morbidity rate of 250 to 499.9 per 100,000 inhabitants.

The remaining three are yellow zones, which means an infection rate of 100 to 249.9 per 100,000 inhabitants: Kurdzhali, Haskovo and Pleven.
