President Klaus Iohannis has asked Romanians living abroad to give up on plans to return to the country for the Easter holidays as most will be quarantined or go into self-isolation.
“I want to say a word about the Romanians living abroad. The Easter holidays are approaching. We need to ask them, with sadness but also honestly, to not come home for the holidays. It is practically impossible to travel in Europe. It is very, very complicated. And when they do return to the country, according to the rules established by experts, they need to go directly into self-isolation or quarantine.
So, what would be the point of returning, to enter quarantine or self-isolation for at least two weeks?,” Iohannis said, in a video-conference with the authorities.
