Romanian Health minister Nelu Tataru said on Thursday that we can talk about the flattening or a decrease in the number of Covid infections only if the rules are observed. Otherwise, the number of coronavirus infections will progressively increase.
“We are in the weeks when 4,000 who refused hospitalization or who asked to be discharged from hospitals are sick. There are two tough weeks. We can only adjust the hospitals and the intensive care beds to the number of daily cases”, Tataru said.
