Senate Chair Anca Dragu said on Wednesday that vaccination measures are “much better and more effective” than restrictions.
“I believe that stimulus measures are the best, they are much better and much more effective than restrictions, because that is how policy measures work in general,” said Dragu when asked about that at the Parliament House.
Dragu said that when you try to impose a measure, the reaction is one of restraint, which is why a permanent call should be made to hold everyone accountable.
“The moment you come in with the axe the reaction is one of restraint. We should rather think of stimulus measures and then we should constantly appeal to this responsibility of all, because it is about our life, in the end, and it is good to look at what scientists are saying, what researchers are saying, what science is saying, what doctors are saying, and less at what anti vaxxers are saying,” added Dragu, according to Agerpres.
Dragu urges for disability legislation: Romania needs the Accessibility Code
Senate Chair Anca Dragu is campaigning for an “Accessibility Code”, an integrated set of laws that would provide tools for the application of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
“The drama facing the persons with disabilities, their struggle to lead a normal life, their need to be understood and helped all this is hard to realise and put into words. Society feels three decades of ignorance for this category of people, and their independence must be a national goal. Hearing-impaired children are still learning from textbooks created before the Revolution. It is a harsh example, but relevant to the reality of the special education system, and the list can go on,” Dragu wrote on Facebook on Wednesday.
She emphasised the need to develop an “Accessibility Code” dedicated to the integration of people with disabilities.
“Romania needs the Accessibility Code, an integrated set of laws that will provide tools for implementing the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. I am pleased to join the initiative to set up a working group in Parliament to build the code. The integration of people with society is a natural process and so it must be for people with special needs,” Dragu said.
