Health Minister Patriciu Achimas-Cadariu announced that the institution he is running, together with the Education Ministry, will prepare a set of measures that will be communicated in schools, aimed at observing the hygiene norms. The decision was made following the increasing number of cases of children with hemolytic-uremic syndrome.
“I contacted Mr [Education] Minister Curaj, and our specialists together with their specialists are preparing a set of measures that will be communicated through inspectorates to schools, too. These are measures on hygiene, observing the norms regarding children, the manner in which activities are conducted. There are normal things, but which we must repeat each time when necessary and mostly in this situation, in order to make a call on responsibility on the part of parents, teachers and doctors. It doesn’t concern medical activities, but measures to be followed and pieces of advice we give to parents and children. In school – in this situation – taking into account that these days we also witnessed statements that do not match reality. That is why we are drawing up this set of measures to recommend everyone,” the Health Minister said at the Marie Curie Hospital on Saturday.
He also made a call on responsibility on the part of the medical staff, so that the severe diarrhea cases with complications be transferred to specialized centres, such as the Marie Curie Hospital in the Capital.
