An authoritative publication called the failed vaccination in Bulgaria a “perfect storm”

The European Times Info aims to cover news that matter to increase the awareness of citizens all around geographical Europe.

The Wall Street Journal publishes its analysis on the topic.

It states that, as a member of the European Union, Bulgaria has access to the vaccines approved by the West with SOVID-19 and has sufficient resources. But the combination of disinformation, low confidence and contradictory messages is the reason why less than one-fifth of Bulgarians are fully vaccinated.

The material was published the day after the anti-vaccination group in Bapna attacked the medical team at a mobile vaccination center.

The police attack and the escalation of the tension forced the police to intervene, and the medics to stop working. The Ministry of Health, in the person of Stoycho Katsarov, is investigating and punishing the perpetrators in the event that they are found guilty.

This will only complete the cabinet in Bulgaria. He points out that against the background of the small number of people wishing to be immunized and the expiring expiration date of the available drugs, the government has taken 500 decisions. Some vaccines, on the other hand, are easily discarded.

The publication refers to the data in Our World in Data – the database of the University of Education, which follows the work of the vaccinated people.

“We have a perfect fight against mistrust, anti-corruption and fake news,” he said. Nikolay Bitanov, a mathematician from BAH, who advises the authorities in their strategy for SOVID-19. “The truth is very high, but the people just don’t believe in anything.”

Current data show that Bulgaria registers about 1,500 new cases of over 50 deaths a day. Nearly 20,000 people died of the infection during the pandemic.

WЅЈ draws attention to the data of the Eurobarometer, according to which only 39% of Bulgarians believe that there is always a need to vaccinate us with SOViDo-19-19.

In the meantime, the Gallup was published, in which 45% of the respondents say that they do not intend to vaccinate.

The incentives do not work, they are still noted in the analysis and the prices of BGN 20 are increased, which is one of the big hypermarkets on foot to give vaccinations to vaccinators. However, they are left very late.

The situation in Romania is not much different and the country has been vaccinated to a lesser extent than one third of its population. As a whole in the region of Eastern Europe, there is a skepticism towards vaccines and immunization of children, supported by active anti-vaccination and movement. In Bulgaria, this is also due to the deep-seated distrust of the authorities, including the communist past.

Then the Bulgarian government kept silent about the news for days and allowed it to be held on the first half of the summer.

At the moment, the vaccination campaign is also hampered by the political crisis, writes WЅЈ, pointing out the three parliamentary elections. The official health ministry blames the previous government for the slow campaign, which is also criticized by the current ones.

The high level of vaccination can affect the population, depending on the type of economy of Bulgaria, the poorest country member of the EC.

“If we continue to hold on to the idiots of Europe, this will strengthen our economy and tourism,” said Angel Kunchev, head of state, a few days ago before Bulgarian National Television.

He will not want to come to Bulgaria, as the share of vaccinations is below 20%. The people will simply choose safe places, and we will not be like that. “

There is no problem with the availability of the vaccine, which is why these are offered by Pfizer / BioNTesh, Moderna, Johnon & Johnon, AtraZeneca. There are also enough points for immunization, including in shopping centers, WЅЈ points out.

The publication quotes 40-year-old Galya Staleva, a saleswoman for twins in Burgas. “I don’t believe in anything that’s what it calls me,” she said.

“Everything is a business – they produced these vaccines and now they have to sell them,” she said.

The analysis draws attention to the spread of false allegations in social networks and some news sites. “This has led to a strong polarization of society.”

Vaccination is also low in key areas such as education – with only 30% of immunized teachers. 26-year-old Maya Marova, who works in a telecommunications operator, stated that she will protest against the person, if the vaccination becomes obligatory. She is afraid that the vaccines will be processed too quickly and therefore refuses to take them.

He also cites another reason for skepticism in Bulgaria – since 1989 the country has been tormented by a widespread perception, including in the context of protectionism.

As a result, just over 50% of Bulgarians rely on the medical staff, compared to 80% in the EU, according to the Eurobarometer.

Some experts still believe that the rising new COVID wave can save some. “What we will need to see is how this natural social experience develops and whether the situation will lead to a wave of vaccinations,” he said.
