Romania’s coronavirus cases surpass 500,000

The total number of coronavirus cases confirmed by tests in Romania surpassed the symbolic threshold of 500,000 on Friday, December 4.

Romanian officials reported 8,062 new coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours, out of 35,467 tests, according to the official daily report released on Friday. Thus, the total number of COVID-19 cases in Romania went up to 500,273.   

More than 390,000 patients were declared cured so far, while the death toll has risen to 12,052. 176 deaths were reported in the last 24 hours.
