A final decision on the state of emergency will be taken according to developments over the next two weeks. “I discussed with the country’s leadership about the actions after 15 May, when the state of emergency expires. If we keep the situation as it is now, the state of emergency will not be extended “, said Chicu.
He noted that lately the number of new cases of coronavirus infection in Moldova has stabilized, and the high numbers recorded in recent days are due to massive outbreak testing. “The increase in active cases in 24 hours does not exceed 30-40 cases.

He said that today some restrictions have already been lifted for people and economic agents. Today, it is allowed to walk in parks in groups of no more than 3 people and specialized stores have been opened, except for markets and shopping malls.
