The United States chose to test its new-type coronavirus infection on Romanian citizens.
This was announced by the head of the Romanian Society of Microbiology and the country’s representative in the World Health Organization, Alexander Rafila.
The first batch of vaccines will arrive in Romania in the near future. At the same time, Rafila called the good news that the citizens of his country will become experimental for American specialists.
“When the tests are over, the United States government will have enough reason to approve the production and sale,” said the representative of Romania at WHO, who was confident that the tests would be successful.
