President Klaus Iohannis called on Romanians on Friday to comply with the new set of restrictive measures imposed in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, showing that these are expected to take effect in two to three weeks.
“I ask you to follow the measures and be patient. We will have to wait two or three weeks until the new set of measures will produce the desired effects. (…) Respect the new set of measures. This set of measures is needed for our health, to give doctors a chance to deal with serious cases in hospitals,” said the head of state at the Cotroceni Palace.

PM Orban on removal from office of Sibiu subprefect: Look at the infection rate
Prime Minister Ludovic Orban on Friday said, when asked about the reason behind the dismissal of the Sibiu subprefect, Rares Macrea, that the answer was the SARS-CoV-2 infection rate recorded in this county.
“Look at the infection rate and you will have your answer. He is the one who exercised the duties of prefect during the time when the actual prefect of Sibiu was infected with the novel coronavirus. And there was a clear request for his dismissal,” Ludovic Orban told a press conference held at the end of his working visit to the Ministry of Environment together with the General Mayor of the Capital City, Nicusor Dan.
The government decided at its Thursday evening’s meeting to release Rares Macrea from the office of Subprefect of Sibiu.
