Seniors and high-risk people isolating will likely be a long-term strategy for autumn and 2021. They'll need more arrangements like that to make life more tolerable.

Dude, when I say it's empty, it is.


It makes sense that it is:

*Non-essential procedures and medical examinations have been postponed indefinitely in most countries to counter the spread of the virus, though recently regular hospital activities have slowly resumed in some places;

*Only a fifth of coronavirus cases require hospitalization, with a lot fewer requiring intensive care;

*Romania has only about 6000 active detected cases, so that would mean around 1200 people are currently hospitalized;

*There are about 400 hospitals in Romania, but I reckon corona patients are being taken just 10-20 of them, the majority in Bucharest and some in the larger municipal centres.

All this would mean 95-97% of Romanian hospitals are completely empty, about 10 are taking care of 10-20 people and 2 or 3 have 60-200 sick. If you don't live in either Bucharest or Suceava (a hotspot, I've gathered), chances are there is nobody in your local hospital.

Actually I was very positively surprised about some laws in Romania, as elders having free transport, also elders having specific hours to make their market during the lockdown, where no younger were admitted. Some smart and humane decisions.
Oh we've got that here too! Public transit is also free right now.

Dude, I wouldn't have even brought this up if I wasn't talking about one of those few hospitals shown at the TV to have people infected with the thing.

In that case, I can't really say what's going on, though I'm inclined to believe there is a sensible explanation to the situation. Perhaps that particular hospital was never that full to begin with? Or maybe most patients were cured? Anything you've implied seems a bit too outlandish, but I am not denying there may be some truth in it.
