There is already indirect evidence that the new Covid-19 strain spreading in the UK has come to Bulgaria, Director of the National Center for Infectious and Parasitic Diseases Professor Todor Kantardzhiev told Dir.bg.
“It is very important to know that the mutation does not impede inoculation and diagnosis and also that there is no medical evidence that it is more contagious. Most importantly – there is no evidence that the new strain causes more serious symptoms, “said Kantardzhiev.
About 1 million Bulgarians have already had Covid-19. They stand a very low chance of becoming re-infected. It is medically proven worldwide that 1 person per 2 million patients is re-infected with the coronavirus, Professor Kantardzhiev contends.
