National Center for Infectious and Parasitic Diseases
There are probably no other patients infected with the "Delta" version of COVID-19.
The case was dated back to May, but was announced only yesterday. This led the Minister of Health Stoycho Katsarov to ask for an explanation from the National Center for Infectious and Parasitic Diseases whether there was a delay in announcing the information.
The first case of an Indian variant of the coronavirus has been detected in our country, reported the National Center for Infectious and Parasitic Diseases (NCIPD).
The sample was taken from a man in the age group between 20 and 30 years old from Pleven.
The NCIPD clarifies that the patient has the right of temporary residence in the country. He didn't declare a trip abroad.
Bulgaria's caretaker Minister of Health Dr. Stoycho Katsarov came out with a statement commenting on the events of the last few days.
With regard to the former director of the National Center for Infectious and Parasitic Diseases, Prof. Todor Kantardzhiev he said there is "nothing extraordinary or heroic" about an official who retires reaching retirement age.
