Covid-19 in Bulgaria: All but 3 districts are green zones

25 of the 28 districts in Bulgaria are Covid-19 green zones, which according to the report of the National Center for Infectious and Parasitic Diseases (NCIPD) for the 14th day period to July 11th.

Three districts are yellow zones, which means an infection rate between 20 and 59.9 per 100 inhabitants.

These three districts are Sofia City (23), Sofia District (32) and Vidin (23).

The districts with the lowest infection rates are Kurdjali and Yambol, both four per 100,000 inhabitants.

In the Plovdiv district the infection rate is nine per 100,000 inhabitants, in Varna 13, Burgas 14 and in the Rousse district six per 100,000 inhabitants.

The NCIPD report a week earlier showed 24 out of 28 counties as green 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.
