Why has Romania abruptly eliminated pandemic restrictions? Rafila’s answer

The Minister of Health, Alexandru Rafila, was asked on Tuesday why the restrictions were abruptly removed in Romania, not gradually.

“It is a question to which I do not have a very concrete answer, but you realize that I am also in solidarity with the decision of the Romanian Government not to extend this state of alert,” the minister replied.

Tuesday is the last day in which the state of alert is still in force in Romania. As of Thursday, the protective mask will be completely removed, there will be no limits on access to shops or public institutions, the location certificate or the green certificate will no longer be required.

However, authorities continue to recommend wearing a mask in crowded areas.
