President Klaus Iohannis on Thursday visited the ICU mobile units at the Romexpo exhibition complex in the Capital City Bucharest.
“It’s impressive to see what we’ve seen today, these four trucks that, each of them, can function as a complete ICU, with all the necessary equipment. And these units can be used wherever you need them – including now, for the COVID patients. (…) They will be managed by the General Inspectorate for Emergency Situations and used depending on the need. This is also the result of a very nice partnership – and I want to underscore this: the acquisition and endowment of these mobile intensive care units are the result of a very good collaboration between state authorities, the private environment, companies, foundations, individuals, volunteers. And here it is. I want to thank all those involved in this project which, from my point of view, is a great success. It is the result of a collaboration and I want to thank those involved from the Government, from the Department of Emergency Situations, the Inspectorate for Emergency Situations, private companies, foundations, volunteers. They all contributed, some with money, others with work. There have organised fundraisings and I also want to thank the individuals who donated money for this project,” said Iohannis, according to Agerpres.
He pointed out that the equipment of the ICUs is state-of-the-art.
“I am convinced that when they are needed, they will be extremely useful,” Iohannis added.
President Klaus Iohannis visited the mobile ICUs at Romexpo together with Prime Minister Ludovic Orban, Interior and Health ministers Marcel Vela and Nelu Tataru, and DSU head Raed Arafat.
