Update from Romania
A state of emergency was declared yesterday (March 16) for 30 days. The EU Observer says, “The move is expected to help free up government funds and simplify acquisition procedures for the national health system and security institutions in the fight against coronavirus. No restrictions of movement have been announced, yet the decree allows for limiting or forbidding people from going in or out certain areas.
“Also, pending decisions of the National Committee for Emergency Situations, bars, restaurants and gathering areas could be closed. The gradual closure of borders, with measures to cap prices for drugs, medical equipment, food and public utility services are powers available during the state of emergency.”
