According to the weekly report of the National Center for Infectious and Parasitic Diseases (NCIP) for the 14-day period, 24 of the 28 districts in Bulgaria are classified as green Covid-19 zones and the remaining four as yellow zones July 4th.
The classification as a green zone means an infection rate of less than 20 per 100,000 inhabitants, while the classification as a yellow zone means an infection rate between 20 and 59.9 per 100,000 inhabitants.
The districts classified as green zones are Blagoevgrad, Burgas, Varna, Veliko Turnovo, Vratsa, Gabrovo, Dobrich, Kurdzhali, Lovech, Montana, Pazardzhik, Pernik, Pleven, Plovdiv, Razgrad, Rousse, Silistra, Sliven, Smolyan, Stara Zagor., Turgovishte , Haskovo, Shumen and Yambol.
Vidin, Kyustendil and the city and district of Sofia are classified as yellow zones.
The highest incidence is in Sofia district, 37, and the lowest in Silistra district, one. The incidence in the city of Sofia is 25.
The NCIPD report a week earlier showed 18 green zones and 10 yellow zones.
The situation shown in the latest report contrasts with the seven consecutive weeks that ended in early May 2021, when every district in Bulgaria was a red zone from Covid-19 – which means an infection rate of 120 or more in 100,000 residents.
