The farmers who own land beyond the Rybnitsa-Tiraspol road, employees of emergency services and the police will be able to enter the Transnistrian region without being obliged to respect the quarantine regime for 14 days, Deputy Prime Minister for Reintegration Cristina Lesnic stated in a press briefing, being quoted by IPN.
Cristina Lesnic said the farmers are asked not to come into contact with other persons and to devote time exclusively to agricultural work. The functionaries of penitentiaries and the police officers working in the limitrophe area, firefighters and emergency service employees and employees of electricity and natural gas network maintaining and repair services will have unhampered access to the region. Discussions are held with the Transnistrian administration so that this allows the persons from the Security Zone to collect their pensions.
The Deputy Prime Minister for Reintegration also said that two consignments of medicines and pharmaceutical products were sent to the Transnistrian region last week. Yesterday, the Agency for Medicines and Medical Devices issued the necessary authorizations for two more consignments of medicines that are to reach the Transnistrian region.
Two days ago, the Reintegration Bureau and the local public administrant of the Security Zone could swiftly agree and implement a cooperation mechanism and collected complaints about the faced difficulties so as to solve them in real time. This way, each morning employees of the Bureau communicate directly with district heads and mayors of the Secretly Zone, stated Cristina Lesnic.
Six cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in the Transnistrian region to date. As many as 1,500 persons were placed in quarantine.
