On Monday, September 7, the former director stated in a live show on TVR Moldova that Moldovan doctors from intensive care worked real miracles. However, statistics show that patients had comorbidities in 99 percent of deaths, such as heart disease, diabetes, or obesity.

“I do not want to be judging or cynical, but all over the world, COVID-19 took people’s lives who were a burden for themselves and those close to them. People who were struggling in terminal stages of cancer, advanced diabetes, cardiovascular pathologies. It happens in France, Italy, and also in Moldova,” said Nicolae Furtună. Moldova’s chief epidemiologist said that the situation is valid for every country. 

The director’s comments became a topic of discussion on social media platforms and in the media outlets. Several political leaders and former officials asked for Nicolae Furtună’s resignation due to the COVID-19 related statement. 

After the media’s provoked situation, Nicolae Furtună apologized for his statements, mentioning that he used the word “burden” as a medical term.

Following the chief epidemiologist’s explanation, President Igor Dodon came up with a message stating that the apology was not enough, asking the Government to dismiss Nicolae Furtună.

As a result, Prime Minister Ion Chicu summoned a meeting with Nicolae Furtună, asking for his demission. Ion Chicu appreciated the professionalism of Nicolae Furtună and thanked him for his work and effort during this challenging period.

The Premier announced that Vasile Guștiuc would be the new interim director of the National Agency for Public Health (NAPH).

Ion Chicu expressed his deep regret for the statements recently launched in the public space by the former chief epidemiologist.
