COVID-19

Moldova is currently among the 20 countries in the world most heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, in terms of both confirmed infections per capita and deaths per capita. The authorities have declared a state of emergency and imposed limitations on public events. Schools and universities have worked in distance learning mode since March. A quarantine has been imposed on certain categories of people arriving in Moldova, and conversely Moldovans are barred from entering certain European states because of their country’s high infection rate. The situation is expected to worsen in the autumn, and the medical system is already working at full capacity.
