COVID certificate, a very good tool for people to get vaccinated
The manager of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases (INBI) “Matei Balş” from the Capital, Cătălin Apostolescu, spoke about the COVID electronic certificate and its importance, in the context in which many specialists consider that it would be very helpful.
“The COVID certificate is a very useful tool to motivate the population to get vaccinated. Our goal is to vaccinate as many people as possible. In this way we can stop the circulation of the virus or at least we can hope that we will have only mild forms that do not endanger life. That is why we, the doctors, feel the need for this instrument “, said Cătălin Apostolescu.
In his turn, the Minister of Health, Alexandru Rafila, was asked if the lack of the electronic COVID certificate could lead us to a lockdown or the closure of schools.
“It simply came to our notice then. I would not like to make such assessments now, I am a supporter of keeping schools open. You see, there are countries that currently have a high incidence of this infection and keep schools open. You always have to weigh the impact on public health, the opening of schools about transmissibility, but also the impact on children’s health. Let us not forget that the health of children of this generation is our responsibility, as much as it is or perhaps even greater than it is related to the impact on public health.
It is one thing to close schools for short periods of time, it is another to keep them closed for months and to affect not only the educational process, as I said, but also the health of children, the way they develop mentally. physically.
The consequences of the long-term closure and, unfortunately, we have experienced this scenario in Romania, could be felt for years. We will talk to all colleagues in the health area, in the education area, so that we can make balanced decisions.
That is why we want the call made by Dr. Apostolescu to make a joint effort, the joint effort will translate into slowing down the transmission, the possibility of the health system to take over the cases and the operation, I think this is an extreme thing. importantly, by functioning as close to normal as possible to the whole society, including the activity in schools “, said Alexandru Rafila.
