The infection rate is 2.07 in Bucharest. The lowest rate is in Gorj, 0.34, while the national average rate is 1.35.

First 3 cases of infections with Covid strains potentially resistant to vaccine in Romania

1,128 of infections with new SARS-CoV-2 strains have been confirmed in Romania so far, with 30 of them leading to deaths – 27 with the UK strain and 3 with the Brazilian strain, according to the National Public Health Institute. No death caused by the South African strain has been confirmed so far in our country.

Yet, authorities have identified three infections – in Bucharest, Ilfov and Suceava – with strains that have mutations which “apparently have an impact on the body’s immune response and, potentially, over the efficacy of the anti-Covid vaccines,” meaning they might be resistant to the vaccines.
