Prof. Kantardzhiev: There is Reason to Doubt the Number of Announced New COVID Cases

He was adamant that the caretaker government was not going in the right direction in the fight against the pandemic, but he himself did not want to disturb them with criticism.

"In the spring of 2020, we were the last in number of patients in Europe. Why do they say we did badly? Now there are vaccines, we also had 120 quiet days and time to prepare," he said. And he called on the caretaker minister to be careful with his decisions because he is doing a lot of damage to healthcare.
