Health Minister: Those violating the new measures ought to go and see the people intubated in Covid wards

“Maybe we ought to take the people who are violating the new measures to a Covid ward to see the people who are intubated and who are between life and death. Maybe they will see what they are causing by not observing the restrictions,” Minister of Health Dr. Stoycho Katsarov commented for Nova TV.

In his words, the anti-epidemic measures which came into effect during the week are finely tuned and if people observe them, there will be a drop in the number of new infections. If that is the case the restrictions will be lifted, partially, or in full, Minister Katsarov added. As to the protests by businesses, Dr. Katsarov stated that with the update of the state budget money has been earmarked for the businesses affected and they will receive their money.

“There were demonstrations before the measures were put in place as well, some of the protests are probably different in character,” he concluded. /BGNES
