“If the information given by the patient is true, this means the virus is already circulating in Romania,” Catalin Apostolescu, spokesman of the Matei Bals hospital in the capital Bucharest told private television station B1.

“We can expect a rise in the number of cases,” he said, adding the patient had light symptoms and was allowed to go home.
