Romanian authorities say that 145 new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in the past 24 hours, well below the daily figures last week.

Tuesday’s figure however was higher than Monday when just 125 new cases were reported.

The latest cases come as authorities decide whether they will lift the state of alert next week which was decreed on May 15.

Under the state of alert, restaurants and malls remain closed, regular church services aren’t taking place, and sports events and international rail travel have been canceled.

With the latest figures, Romania has a total of 20,749 cases, the Strategic Communication Group said. Of those, almost 15,000 have recovered.

Some 1,345 patients have succumbed to the virus since the outbreak.
