In Romania, no coronavirus infections have been registered in the Harghita county of Szeklerland alone.
Gyöngyi Tar, the county's chief medical officer, told the MTI: 150 in the county were placed in institutional quarantine by 2 pm on Monday afternoon and 3095 in residential isolation. For some of them, the incubation period of the disease has already expired and their isolation has ceased. At present, 130 people are in the process of being bribed and 2509 are living. He added that the coronavirus test was performed in all required cases, but all 58 samples tested negative.
According to a Monday announcement by the Harghita County Health Directorate, coronavirus testing has been conducted at two laboratories in Miercurea-Ciuc since March 26. Allow 12 hours for test results. The possibility of local testing was created because the test centers of national importance became overcrowded and had to wait a long time for the result.
Last Friday, Recorder.ro published a voluminous compilation that only Sibiu and Harghita counties were left without a registered infection in the country. However, a Sebenian doctor reporting to the portal considered the Sibiu county data to be a loss of eyes. He added that sometimes it takes a week for a sample of the Sibiu County to be tested in the Cluj-Napoca laboratory. On Saturday, an assistant at the Sibiu County Emergency Hospital was found to be infected.
Tar Gyöngyi Harghita county chief medical officer said that the good local results were largely attributable to the fact that Harghita county came mainly from Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and Hungary, while Romanian counties came from the most infected countries in Europe: Italy and Spain. He also added, however, that the County Health Directorate also took his work seriously. Anyone arriving home has been placed in quarantine or home isolation in accordance with the then applicable rules. He added that they will certainly not be able to avoid the outbreak, but will greatly reduce the risk of spreading without the establishment of large quarantine centers. The people were scattered in twos and threes to the guest rooms and guest houses that had been turned into a barrage. This way, even if someone is found to be infected, they can hardly spread the disease.
Andrea Sólyom, a sociologist and assistant professor at the Sapientia Transylvanian Hungarian University Faculty of Miercurea Ciuc, said the data partly reveals a different Harghita county. He also highlighted the diversity of migrant workers' routes in the county, which is 85.2 percent inhabited by Hungarians. He also noted, however, that the relative isolation of Harghita County did not favor the spread of the epidemic. There are no airports in the county, no busy highways, and most of the population lives in villages and towns in the county are also small towns.
The Romanian authorities have provided county-level data on the number of people infected by March 21, and since then only national data have been released.
