Romania’s Govt seeks ways to increase disappointing vaccination rate

Romanian health minister Ioana Mihăilă said that she proposed, in the governing coalition meeting, a series of measures to accelerate the COVID-19 vaccination campaign, says Romania-Insider.com.

The proposals include both rewards for those who are vaccinated and restrictions for those who are not vaccinated: mandatory testing of unvaccinated medical staff and limited access on weekends in non-essential areas, Hotnews.ro reported.
