President Iohannis: We do not want national quarantine for Romania

President Klaus Iohannis declared on Wednesday that a national quarantine is not desired and called for compliance with the restrictions and for the speeding up of the vaccination campaign.

"We do not want a national quarantine for Romania," Iohannis said.


He added that solutions must be found to allow people to attend church on Easter.

"This year, Easter holidays are a long interval apart. Catholics, evangelicals, and Protestants will be celebrating Easter on April 4, and Orthodox Christians will be celebrating it in early May. I very much want us to steer the pandemic response in such a way that people are able to attend church, to meet - of course, in a smaller circle, large parties are a no-go - but to be able to meet with family. I think this is possible. As I have stated very clearly from the beginning, I don't want us to restrict access to the church. It's the Holy Feast of Easter. People want to go to church and we need to find solutions to make this possible," Iohannis said.

President Klaus Iohannis participates on Wednesday, together with Prime Minister Florin Citu and several members of the Government, in the first action within the afforestation campaign in the desertified area of southern Romania, which takes place in Dabuleni in Dolj County.
