Bulgaria’s Plovdiv district appears on the verge of an epidemic of influenza, with the number of cases in Dobrich and Stara Zagora also on the rise, with health authorities warning that the annual wave of flu has come to the country about a month early this season.

In the Plovdiv district, the number of diagnoses of flu is at a rate of about 171 out of 10 000, meaning that the figure has doubled in the past week.
