The green certificate may not be implemented until the end of this year


The governing coalition discussed the bill for the introduction of the green certificate in the Government on Thursday, but PNL and PSD failed to reach an agreement, so the chances for it to be implemented by the end of this year, as their the Executive wanted, they are very small. It is possible that the Government will abandon the idea of sending the project to Parliament as a matter of urgency.


PSD’s leader, Marcel Ciolacu, said that the provision regarding the conditioning of the access to the workplace by the green certificate is unconstitutional, showing that specialists in this respect were consulted.

Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca had consultations on Thursday with the associative structures in the public and private areas regarding prevention measures and combating the COVID-19 pandemic, the participants supporting the need for an adequate legal framework for managing an eventual new pandemic wave, as well as for maintaining economic activities.

According to a press release sent by the Government, the Minister of Health, Alexandru Rafila, took part in the dialogue, as well as other specialists involved in identifying and implementing solutions for protecting the population.

"Regarding the COVID-19 certificate, the participants supported the need for an adequate legal framework for managing an eventual new pandemic wave, as well as the importance of respecting measures for preventing and combating the pandemic, for both the health of the Romanian people, as well for maintaining economic activities, which can offer continuity in carrying out activities, public services, as well as maintaining jobs, in accordance with the legal and constitutional provisions," the press release reads.

Within the discussions, the quoted source mentions, the vaccine efficiency was highlighted and the experts' opinion was reiterated regarding the capacity of authorized vaccines by the European Medicines Agency, of offering the highest level of defence in front of the severe forms of the SARS-CoV-2 illness, basically understanding that although the vaccine does not protect from infection, instead it protects us from the the serious forms of the illness and the loss of life.

According to the press release, the PM highlighted that the Government will continue to support the most appropriate measures to protect the citizens, continue the economic activities in good conditions, as well as ensure public services.

Furthermore, the PM asked the Minister of Health and the head of the Department for Emergency Situations (DSU) to take all necessary steps for preparing the health system to offering medical assistance in pandemic conditions, as well as having adequate treatment scheme available.
