The Romanian government has decided to donate a new batch of vaccines against Covid-19 to Moldova. The donation of 100,620 Pfizer-BioNTech comes as a result of the discussions President Maia Sandu had with the Romanian Prime Minister, Florin Cîțu.
“We received very good news from Bucharest: following the discussions we had, a few weeks ago, with Prime Minister Florin Cîțu, the Romanian Government decided to donate another batch of the vaccine against Covid to Moldova. The donation announced today is 100,620 Pfizer-BioNTech doses. Thus, the total amount of vaccines that Romania has offered to our country in recent months, exceeds 500,000 doses. Thanks to the generous support of Romania, on March 2 we managed to start the vaccination campaign, saving lives in an extremely difficult period,” wrote President Sandu on Facebook.
