More than 500 medical workers leave Bulgaria every year. With the start of the Covid crisis and the strain on the healthcare system, the shortage of medical workers reached a critical point. At this point statistical data are staggering - at medical establishments there is a shortage of 470 doctors and 26,000 nurses!
