Romania’s president Klaus Iohannis went to the Government meeting on Thursday evening, November 5, to announce new restrictions that the authorities will enforce in the country to try and stop the accelerated growth in new COVID-19 infection cases. Tighter measures are needed, the president said. Still, he added that the economic activities must continue and the general elections must take place on time (on December 6).

Romania reported almost 10,000 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday, about 50% more than last Thursday and a new daily record, announced Romania Insider.

“The measures taken so far are no longer enough. New measures are needed countrywide. All schools must switch to online learning. Public and private employees must work remotely wherever this is possible. Stores must close no later than nine in the evening. Night-time movement must be restricted, parties - banned, fairs and markets - closed. Wearing sasks must become mandatory throughout the country both in public spaces and in workplaces,” president Iohannis said in the press briefing at the beginning of the Government meeting.
