Access to sanitation up by just 1 pc in last 21 years

Specialists underline the dangers caused by lack of hygiene in Romania, this being “still an unlearned lesson,” against the backdrop in which only 72 per cent of the population has access to the sanitation network in 2011, just 1 per cent above the 1990 level.

“Since efficient education is primarily made through personal example, it’s important to be aware how much personal hygiene, the disinfection of the home and of the working environment matters,” Dr. Corina Zugravu, from the Public Health Institute, stated for Mediafax. In Romania only 72 per cent of the population has access to the sanitation network, which means that 30 per cent of Romanians are exposed to microbes and viruses that can cause serious and in some cases deadly illnesses. In 1990 that level was approximately the same, namely 71 per cent.
