Acting Prime Minister Aureliu Ciocoi, after the meeting of the Unified Command Center, admitted that the National Commission for Emergency Situations’ decision to ban walks in parks, wooded areas, forests and recreation areas is out of place and promised this ban will be examined in the next meeting of the Commission, IPN reports.
“As the president of Commission for Emergency Situations, I admit that this decision wasn’t well thought out as the municipality of Chisinau, Bălți town and, in general, the Republic of Moldova, are not in quarantine or lockdown,” stated Aureliu Ciocoi.
Parliament on March 31 declared a state of emergency in Moldova for the period between April 1 and May 30. In this connection, the National Commission for Emergency Situations instituted a special movement regime for the inhabitants of Bălți and Chisinau. In both of the municipalities, the residents cannot leave homes between 11pm and 5am. The trips for professional purposes, to the doctor or the drugstore are an exception. The Commission banned the movement and stay of persons in public places, such as parks, playgrounds, sports grounds and recreational areas. All those who will be outside homes are obliged to have identification papers on them.
