President Klaus Iohannis has made a new call for calm on the coronavirus topic. In a Facebook post, the President tells Romanian citizens there is no real reason for panic, while also asking mass media to treat the topic with responsibility.
“It is normal to treat all this situation very seriously, as the first case has been confirmed in Romania, but there is no real reason for panic. The Covid-19 infection mostly prompts only mild symptoms, sore throat, coughing and fever, like any other cold. So, the natural step for each of us is to firmly enforce the authorities’ recommendations and to get constant information from reliable, official sources,” Iohannis said.
“Let’s show solidarity in discouraging any attempt to create sensational news in these moments. Spreading alarming pieces of news or even fake news can generate a panic outbreak, with negative consequences for our people. Let’s contribute in sharing useful prevention information and let’s take care to protect the elderly and vulnerable people who have chronic diseases”, the head of state further points out.
In his turn, a secretary of state within Health Ministry, Nelu Tataru has also launched a call for “calm, not panic”, underlining that: “It’s no need to change our lifestyle, to take supermarkets by storm or alert our relatives living abroad,” he said.
