On Thursday, President Klaus Iohannis praised the Romanians’ efforts to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, concluding: “Together we saved lives. This is what a strong and united nation looks like. ” The President warned that if the situation worsened, he would not hesitate to declare a state of emergency again.
“We are at the end of two difficult months in which most of you, the overwhelming majority, have complied with the restrictions. You stayed in the houses, you gave up seeing your family and friends, you changed your life, putting the lives of others above. We managed to limit the spread. You are national heroes. Thank you for the sacrifices. We can now say that together we saved lives. This is what a strong and united nation looks like, and we must continue to do so in the coming months. The fight against the virus is far from being over, “said the president.
The head of state presented data on the number of illnesses and the situation of those in hospitals, as well as the number of tests and thanked the medical staff again.
