We return to restrictions! It applies from today, January 1, 2022. What other measures is the Government preparing

Given that the winter holidays are over, Romanians are returning to the old anti-coronavirus restrictions. Please note that these restrictions affect the operating hours of the stores.

Therefore, all shops, restaurants, bars and cafes will be open until 22:00. Also, the locations will operate at 50% capacity, while access will be based on a green certificate.

The authorities did not give up the green certificate

Also, the authorities did not give up the idea of ​​implementing the green certificate at work. The Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca and the Minister of Health Alexandru Rafila are of the opinion that the document is a necessary one due to the increased number of infections.

Authorities also say that if this document is not voted on sooner, then Romania will end up in another lockdown, which will lead to the closure of schools.

Testing and vaccination

We remind you that the authorities have already taken several measures to increase the capacity for testing, in order to detect people who are infected with coronavirus faster and easier.

Authorities are also preparing an intense campaign to promote third-dose vaccination, also called a booster.

Europe, again the epicenter of COVID-19

One year after the first coronavirus inoculations, Europe is advancing at an uneven pace, with large percentages of the vaccinated population in the southern countries and small percentages in the eastern states of the continent, where distrust of the vaccine is evident.

In Spain, Portugal, the Republic of Ireland, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Italy, over 80% of the population is fully vaccinated. In France, Germany, Sweden and Switzerland, two-dose inoculation reaches 76%, 70%, 71% and 66%, respectively.

The situation is getting complicated in several eastern countries. In the case of Russia, 58.2% of the population has a complete scheme. Meanwhile, in Poland, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Romania, those vaccinated with the full scheme reach 55%, 46%, 26% and 39% respectively.

In northern Macedonia and Albania, the vaccination rate is lower and only 39% of Macedonians and 35.5% of Albanians have received the full scheme. Booster doses are just as rare, with both countries administering them to about 4% of their population.

The epidemiologist and health expert, former WHO director, Daniel López Acuña, told Antena3 that there was an excessive relaxation of protection, as well as the abandonment of wearing masks indoors in many countries, which contributed to the recurrence of infections. Take the UK for example, where the pandemic control measures have been relaxed since mid-2021 and where the incidence has been 10 times higher in recent weeks than in Spain.

To date, there are several countries that have re-adopted new measures against coronavirus and its variants.
