The aim of the large-scale representative study is to show the degree of immunity to coronavirus in the city.
Between 3,000 and 5,000 antibody tests will be provided, the exact number is still being determined.
The design and methodology of the study will be prepared within 7 days. The actual testing will be organized and conducted by RHI – Burgas in the first half of June.
Thus, at the beginning of the summer season, Burgas will have a representative study that will give it grounds to advertise itself as a safe destination and a safe region to visit and rest, according to the municipality.
Extensive testing will show how effective the measures have been in the seaside town and where to focus efforts on such crises in the future.
