Your health and safety are our priority!" shows a message posted by the General Directorate for Gendarmes of Bucharest City on Facebook.
The Alliance for the Union of Romanians (AUR) has called for street protests, Saturday and Sunday, of all citizens discontent with the way in which the Orban Government and President Klaus Iohannis have managed the public health crisis generated by the SARS-CoV-2 virus "by infringement of the Constitution, of rights and liberties, by censoring the press and by acquisitions of health equipment at indefensibly high prices."
