Romania Records Its Highest Number of COVID-19 Cases in More Than Three Months

BUCHAREST — Romania on Wednesday recorded its highest number of COVID-19 infections in more than three months as the nation battles a third-wave of the virus.

Out of almost 40,000 tests performed nationwide, 6,186 came back positive for COVID-19, indicating a surge of infections and the highest number of positive cases in a single day since early December.

In an attempt to manage the spread of the virus, authorities are tightening restrictions at a county level if they enter a “red scenario” – meaning more than three cases of COVID-19 infection per thousand residents over a 14-day period.

The capital Bucharest and seven other counties are currently in a red scenario, which sees the closure of businesses such as restaurants, bars, cafes, and gambling centers close indoor spaces to the public.

The nation-wide curfew last week was also changed from 11pm-6am to 10pm-5am.

So far Romania has recorded more than 874,000 COVID-19 infections, 21,787 people have died, and it has administered more than 2.2 million vaccines.


ATHENS – While the New Democracy government is easing health restrictions for rabid anti-vaxxers, those fully vaccinated against COVID-19 may need a fourth shot in the autumn.
