Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, offered Hungary’s help to Romania on Saturday in the wake of a hospital fire in the western Romanian city of Constanța.
According to MTI, Minister Szijjártó said that “misfortunes never come singly”, and at a time when an increasing number of people need hospital care in Romania as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the epidemic hospital of Constanța was ravaged by fire on Friday. He said he had sent a letter to Romanian counterpart Bogdan Aurescu offering his condolences as well as Hungary’s help. “The Hungarian health system has the capacity, and if you need help in looking after patients, you can rely on us,” Minister Szijjártó said. The Romanian interior minister said seven patients died in a fire at the Constanța epidemic hospital’s intensive care unit where patients were on ventilators.
