Coronavirus in Bulgaria


The first cases of people in Bulgaria having the Coronavirus were confirmed yesterday (located in the towns of Pleven and Gabrovo). As result of this, the Government authorities issued an ordinance according to which visitations/meetings/pick ups of children placed for upbringing in the affected areas are forbidden. For all other areas there is a recommendation for visitations/meetings/pick ups of children to be limited and their allowance will depend on the decisions made by the local competent authorities/institutions. FNA will be contacting the competent authorities before a personal contact/pick up of children in order to make the necessary arrangements. There is a risk for the personal meetings/pick ups of children placed in other areas to be restricted, too, should cases of the Coronavirus get confirmed there.
