It is a signal that the situation is not under control, as we would have liked, and that we must be very careful to respect the social distancing rules”, Arafat said.

PM’s call

PM Ludovic Orban has made a new call on the Romanians to observe the protection and social distancing rules, warning that a significant increase of the number of new COVID-19 infections may lead to new restrictions.

“Of course, it is a warning (editor note: the increase in coronavirus cases), and we’ll have to monitor what’s happening even more closely. Mu call to Romanians is the same: protect yourselves, wear face masks, observe the social distancing and health protection rules! “, said Ludovic Orban.

The PM also said that a decision on re-opening shopping malls will be taken 3-4 days before June 15, based on the doctors’ opinion.
