Bucharest entered the red scenario on Wednesday as the city’s COVID-19 incidence rate reached 3.3 per thousand inhabitants, Digi24 reported, quoting Bucharest prefect Antonela Ghita, according to Romania-Insider.
In this scenario (at an incidence rate between 3 and 6 per thousand), people need to show the green certificate to enter restaurants, public and private events, concerts, shows, or swimming pools. However, the Committee for Emergency Situations has to meet first and impose this requirement. According to sources quoted by G4media.ro, the meeting is to take place later on Wednesday.
The green certificate is proof that a person has either been vaccinated against COVID-19, received a negative test result, or recovered from COVID-19.
Bucharest’s COVID incidence rate increased from 2.57 per thousand on Monday to 2.91 on Tuesday and 3.3 on Wednesday.
The counties of Ilfov, Satul Mare, and Timis have also entered the red scenario.
