Romania reported 2,136 new Covid-19 cases on Monday the lowest daily rate for two months.

The death toll was also the lowest daily toll in more than a month.

The Strategic Communication Group said there were 179 Covid-19 fatalities in the last 24 hours. It was the lowest figure since Oct. 4 when 133 people died.

Romania has one of the highest Covid-19 death rates per population size in the world. Hundreds have died every day for the past month.

On Nov. 2, a record 591 people in Romania succumbed to the virus.

Cases were sky-high in October, reaching almost 19,000 on October 19. Authorities imposed new restrictions such as mandatory green passes as the drama unfolded.

Vaccination certificates are now required for many day-to-day activities, such as going to the gym, the cinema or a shopping mall. There is a 10 p.m. curfew for everyone.

Since then, cases have slowly subsided.

Parliament is scheduled to vote on whether to make green passes mandatory later Monday.
