PM Citu: Romanians have understood the only way out of pandemic is vaccination

Prime Minister Florin Citu said, on Saturday evening, at the Bucharest National Theatre (TNB), that Romanians had understood that the only way out of the pandemic was vaccination.

“Together we went through a difficult year, together we wore masks, together we kept the social distance, together we were vaccinated. I want to thank [the Romanians] that they have understood. We have a vaccination campaign that continues and today we have a record number of vaccinated people, 120,000 vaccinated people. The campaign continues, the Romanians have understood that the only solution to get out of the pandemic is vaccination,” said Citu.

The Prime Minister said he was “very happy” to take part in the TNB pilot show and announced that other relaxation measures would follow from June 1.

“Tonight I am very happy to be at this show, a pilot event, but you know very well that from June 1 we will launch several events, with certain regulations, but we start. Starting today we have the first step in returning to normality, an important step that Romania is taking and I think it is the first country in the European Union to take this step, thanks to the Romanians. The Romanians have understood they should get vaccinated,” said Florin Citu, according to Agerpres.


“Decision to wear a mask or not in offices with all people vaccinated, after June 1”


Prime Minister Florin Citu said on Saturday evening that a decision on whether or not to wear a protective mask at work, where there are only vaccinated people, would be taken from June 1.

The Prime Minister also said that from June 1, the Government would amend the normative acts necessary for the safe conduct of cultural events.

Asked if all Romanians would have access to performances after June 1, Prime Minister Citu said: “For all Romanians… it depends on whether they are vaccinated or not. You have seen that every event, indoors or outdoors, has certain criteria on the number of people inside, if the people are vaccinated, if the organisers assume that the people are vaccinated, then we talk about another number of people,” said the prime minister, according to Agerpres.

Regarding a possible falsification of the documents attesting vaccination, Florin Citu pointed out that at TNB “it was verified very easily” and that “we can discuss solutions” as “we are in the year 2021.”

“I entered here today based on an ID,” the prime minister said. He attended on Saturday night the pilot show with the play “Dinner with fools” by Francis Veber, at the Bucharest National Theatre

Moreover, Citu mentioned that “Romania has taken the decision, perhaps unique in the European Union, to allow citizens coming from the green zone to enter Romania, tourists, without any documents proving whether or not they are vaccinated, only with the necessary documents to enter Romania.”
