Ten more deaths from Covid-19 were reported in Romania on Thursday, bringing the country’s total death toll to 1,046 as the government warned people to continue following social distancing rules to head of a second wave of pandemic.

A day before the easing of coronavirus restrictions, Raed Arafat, the head of the Emergency Situations Department (DSU), told local TV station Digi24 that people should not expect to resume normal life.

Romania Insider quoted Arafat as saying “So far, we introduced firm measures. Bit by bit, the responsibility is transferred to the citizens. If people understand that getting out of the house comes with rules, even if they no longer need that declaration inside localities, that wearing a mask is compulsory, then we stand a chance to go through the second wave easier.”

Romania has so far recorded 16,247 cases of coronavirus, with 245 more reported on Thursday. So far, 9,053 patients have recovered.
