SOFIA, July 28 (Xinhua) -- The Bulgarian government on Tuesday approved the extension of the nationwide epidemic emergency until Aug. 31 in a bid to curb the spread of COVID-19, the cabinet said in a statement.

The epidemic emergency was initially declared on May 14 with a duration of one month, replacing the state of emergency implemented on March 13. It has already been extended by the end of June, mid-July, and end of July, respectively.

"The prolongation of the epidemic emergency will make it possible to strengthen the implementation of temporary anti-epidemic measures in order to limit the spread of the disease and protect the lives and health of citizens," the statement said.

From June 9 until now, there has been a significant increase in the number of daily registered COVID-19 cases in the country, the statement said.

A total of 10,621 COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Bulgaria so far, and 347 people have died. On June 8, the figures stood at 2,727 and 160, respectively. Enditem
