The Italy situation from last year appears to be nearing: Snaking lines of ambulances are already waiting outside hospitals to drop off patients, who are then treated in hallways or have to share oxygen masks handed out by exhausted doctors.

“I’m afraid we’re already in the same scenario because the hospitals are overwhelmed by Covid patients and have to dismiss other emergencies,” said Valeriu Gheorghita, who heads Romania’s vaccination task force. 


“No one but ourselves can save us from this extremely complicated situation. We need to stop being divided and trust science and the doctors.”

Far-right protesters in Romania reject virus restrictions

By STEPHEN McGRATH

October 2, 2021

The protest angered some medical workers.

Beatrice Mahler, hospital manager of Bucharest’s Marius Nasta Institute of Pneumology, said Saturday’s protesters “believe their right to ‘freedom’ is above our right to health.”

The pandemic has highlighted the poor condition of Romania’s overstretched health care system. The Eastern European country has the lowest spending on health care in the EU’s 27 nations relative to GDP at 5.2% compared to a bloc average of 10%.

Romania has fully vaccinated only 33.5% of all adults, making it the second-least vaccinated EU nation after Bulgaria. It has seen more than 37,390 confirmed virus deaths.

Other articles show good protocol,this video must be a smaller less equipped hospital. PPE is not up to standards and treating patients one to another without risk is apparent.All senior citizens.

Romania's health system torn apart by pandemic  

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-58992090

The statistics seem to be getting worse.  

  • 574 people died last Tuesday
  • On average 389 deaths per day over seven days
  • 226 people have died per million in the past 14 days
  • EU average is 24 deaths per million

Romania with a total of 2,299 deaths / million is just above USA's total (2,266), but it is rising rapidly.
