SOFIA (Reuters) - Bulgaria’s central bank governor Dimitar Radev has tested positive for coronavirus and has self-isolated at home, where he will be continuing to carry out his duties, the central bank said on Wednesday.
Radev will be delegating some of the operational work to deputy governors for the time of his quarantine, it said, adding that the 64-year-old’s general health is good.
Bulgaria registered 2,569 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, its highest daily tally, and is shutting high schools, universities and nightclubs for two weeks as it struggles to contain the spike in infections.
