Boyko Borissov, Bulgaria’s prime minister, speaks during a news conference at the European Union (EU) leaders summit in Brussels, Belgium, on Friday June 29, 2018. EU leaders negotiated late into the night in Brussels on measures to stem the flow of migrants into the bloc and spread the burden of handling those who do come.

Bulgaria’s Prime Minister Boyko Borissov tested positive for the coronavirus and is feeling a “general malaise,” he said on his official Facebook page.

Borissov, 61, was briefly quarantined on Friday after coming into contact with a deputy minister who had tested positive, but he was then released on Saturday after twice testing negative. He said he’s resting at home.

The number of hospitalized patients in intensive care in the Balkan country reached a record-high on Sunday. Local authorities across the county, including in the capital Sofia, have shut down bars and night clubs while the government is trying to avoid tougher nationwide measures.
