Deaths in Bulgaria by weeks
To meet the emerging public interest for accurate, timely and sufficient statistical information on mortality during the COVID-19 pandemic period and to assist authorities in making appropriate and prompt decisions to overcome the crisis, the National Statistical Institute (NSI) publishes weekly data on deaths from the beginning of April 2020 to date.
In recent weeks, the number of deaths has steadily decreased. The mortality rate returned to pre-COVID-19 levels, resulting in a significant outflow of users of weekly death data.
Since June 2022, due to reduced interest in the data, the NSI has continued to publish weekly data on deaths, once a month 10 days after the end of the last reference week of the month. In case the number of deaths in the country starts to rise again, the NSI will continue the weekly publication of mortality data.
