Romania: There is no falsification of data on the spread of Covid-19, says Health Minister

There is no “falsification” regarding the presentation of the data around the coronavirus pandemic, Health Minister Nelu Tataru said on Tuesday night, appearing on a show on the private channel Digi24. “The reports are conducted daily by the Public Health Directorates, each county separately, of the National Institute of Public Health (INSP) through a platform of the Special Telecommunications Service. Just this week I think there will be a presentation by the INSP on how exactly the reports are produced every day, which will be given to the press and we will see precisely that there can be no falsification. You will see the process behind the collection and presentation of the data. Let’s think about the 1,400 people who have died, all the patients, the professionals in the medical field who have died. I don’t think there is an easy way to talk about those figures”, Tataru said. He also said that the tests of the Ministry of Health would start next week.

The PSD’s interim president, Marcel Ciolacu, said on Monday that the government had banned the mayor of Bucharest, PSD’s Gabriela Firea, from conducting molecular coronavirus tests in the population so that information “always comes from one source”, which constitutes a case of manipulation”. /ibna
