Secretary of State Raed Arafat about Colectiv fire victims : ‘It is still possible to have more deaths’

Home Affairs Secretary of State Raed Arafat (photo) said on Sunday here was still a risk of more deaths among the Colectiv fire victims.

‘We still have patients that cannot be transferred or transported, critical patients. These are patients who couldn’t have been transferred even if we had wanted to and even if there had been available beds in hospitals abroad. These patients could get better or worse. It means that, unfortunately, we cannot say it is over. A period of complications of infections and other types of complications will begin for some of the patients. Unfortunately, it is still possible that we may have more deaths among the patients who are in the country and outside the country’, Arafat said on ProTV.

He recommended to those who had been in the club on 30 October, but did not suffer any injuries, to go and see the doctor just in case.
‘If you have no symptom, if you don’t feel anything, it means you are Ok. If you have a problem and you know there is a problem, you go and see the doctor. Some may have some issues for a while, such as coughing, pulmonary distress and other issues, develop infections more easily, which definitely requires medical attention’, explained the MAI official.
According to him, the Colectiv victims will still require support at least for another year or even two for physical and mental recovery.
‘Fifty-five people have died in the Colectiv fire. The Health Ministry says, on Saturday, 56 persons injured in the fire were in Bucharest hospitals. Thirteen were in critical condition. Another patient was transferred to the AHK hospital in Vienna on Friday.
