President Iohannis: Romania must be prepared for 4th wave of COVID-19 pandemic


Romania must be prepared to deal with the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the "safest" way to slow it down is vaccination, President Klaus Iohannis said on Wednesday.

"This virus that we have been facing for so many months has made and continues to make victims. Although we are now in a period with a low number of infections, we must be realistic. The pandemic is not over. We see it taking many countries by storm again, by the so-called wave 4, and Romania must also be prepared, in her turn, to face it. And the safest way to slow this pandemic down remains vaccination, and I urge all who have not yet been vaccinated to go and get immunised with confidence. Because the beneficial effects in terms of protection against COVID-19 are certain and they have been demonstrated. Every extra person who gets vaccinated contributes responsibly to ending this serious health crisis," the head of state said at the ceremony occasioned by the decoration of 45 doctors and nurses, on the occasion of the National Ambulance Day. 


President von der Leyen's statement on a new milestone in the EU's vaccine strategy


"The European Union has kept its word and done the right thing.

We aim to protect 70% of EU adults with at least one dose of vaccine in July.

Today we reached our goal. And 57% of adults are already fully protected with two doses of vaccine.
These figures place Europe among the world's leaders.

The process of recovering the gaps has been very successful, but we must continue our efforts.

The delta variant is very dangerous. Therefore, I appeal to all those who have the opportunity to be vaccinated. For your own health and to protect others.

EU will continue to provide sufficient quantities of vaccines ''
