Despite the pandemic lockdown, Germany and Romania agreed last month on sending Romanian workers to Germany, most of them to gather asparagus from the German farms.
Romanian mass-media accused the Romanian Government of closing this deal behind shut doors, though the ministers knew the risks during COVID-19 pandemic and knew the Romanian citizens are exposed to the risk of getting infected.
At the end of April, Romanian Minister Of Foreign Affairs announced that 200 of 500 Romanian citizens working at a slaughter house in Pforzheim, Germany, got infected with the novel coronavirus.
On top of that, the poor accommodation condition and the the abuses Romanian workers are exposed to, reported by the national media, are to be verified by the Romanian minister of Labor who arrived in Germany this week. At the moment, around 26,000 Romanian workers have already left the country during the lockdown, officially approved, in order to work in Germany.
