Bulgarian president blocks coronavirus lockdown
An emergency law which closed schools, bars and restaurants in Bulgaria and gave the army power to enforce social distancing and quarantines has been blocked by the president Rumen Radev.

The legislation was passed on Friday by parliament, which last week declared a state of emergency until 13 April.

However the president, a former former air force commander, said the restrictions would increase anxiety and a sense of crisis among people already worried about Bulgaria's lack of resources to deal with the virus.

He said: "No battle is won through fear....  The lack of adequate measures will bring about a situation where hunger will prevail over fear and the consequences will be destructive."
