President Iohannis: COVID-19 pandemic was doubled, in the past year, by a misinformation epidemic

The COVID-19 pandemic was doubled, in the past year, by a misinformation epidemic, said, on Monday, President Klaus Iohannis, at the opening of the school year at the Carola Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy.

“Unfortunately, in the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic was doubled by a misinformation epidemic, by which years and years of medical training wound up being contested on the basis of opinions without scientific backing or even on the basis of deliberate misinformation circulating on social media. This fake news epidemic doubted the efficiency of the vaccines obtained by methods perfected over the years. All these make your already hard work more difficult than it should be,” said the head of state.

He concluded that “the vaccine, for example, is the most efficient way to limit the effects of the pandemic and that fact remains true, regardless of the opinions of some or others.”
