Health Minister Vlad Voiculescu aid on Tuesday that for the time being enforcing quarantine in the Capital City was not under discussion, according to AGERPRES.
He reiterated that "no measure can ever be ruled out, as long as people's health is at stake."
"Nonetheless, we're not talking about quarantine in the days immediately ahead. (...) We're not talking about quarantining [the Capital] at the time being," Voiculescu pointed out.
The health minister said there would be a set of measures, which "could mean additional restrictions," which will most likely be announced on Tuesday.
"There will be some measures that we are discussing now at 13:00, at the Ministry of Health, together with the Department for Emergency Situations, with the National Institute of Public Health. It is a set of measures that will most likely be announced during the day. Measures could certainly mean additional restrictions. (...) Quarantine cannot be ruled out. It is under discussion, once the 6 per thousand threshold has been exceeded, but this is a discussion we have with specialists every day," the minister said.
Asked if he, personally, considers that Bucharest should be quarantined, Vlad Voiculescu replied: "I, personally, consider that we must take measures to save some people."
He said that almost "everywhere" in the country there is a shortage of medical staff.
Vlad Voiculescu said that the wish of every member of the Government is that, at Easter, people have holidays "as they should be."
