Reading Time: < 1 minute

Bulgaria is closing nightclubs and discos and students from high schools and universities will study online for two weeks as of Oct. 29 as it grapples to contain a surge in coronavirus infections, the health ministry said.

The ministry also banned the public at sports events and said cinemas and theatres should work at 30% of their capacity until Nov. 12, while restaurants should limit the number of people at one table to six, among other restrictions.

The Balkan country reported 2,243 new coronavirus infections on Tuesday, its highest daily tally. Some 40,143 Bulgarians have tested positive for the disease since March and 1,146 have died.
