The Minister of Health, Vlad Voiculescu, says that he found out about the incident at the “Victor Babeș” Hospital in the Capital around 6.30 pm, but the Secretary of State Andreea Moldovan states that the Minister was at the hospital at 5 pm. Raed Arafat specified that he was called by Voiculescu after 18.00, Mediafax reports.
The first to talk about the time when he found out about the tragedy at the “Victor Babeș” Hospital in the Capital, where three people died due to a technical failure at the ATI COVID truck, was even Vlad Voiculescu.
Shortly before Prime Minister Florin Cîțu and the head of DSU, Raed Arafat, started the press conference on Monday night, Voiculescu wrote on Facebook that he found out about the problems at the “Victor Babeș” hospital around 6.30 pm.
During the conference, Raed Arafat provided details by the hour about how he communicated to the authorities the tragedy from “Victor Babeș”. He said that although he found out around 17.00, he was called by the Minister of Health around 18.00.
“I can rather say that he called me for the first time (Vlad Voiculescu – no.) And I did not call elsewhere. I was in talks to see that the situation was under control. He called me but after 6 p.m. He called me and I explained the whole situation and what situation we are in. It was already announced and we informed him how far we had reached, all these aspects “, explained Raed Arafat.
Asked why he did not immediately call the Minister of Health, Raed Arafat said that “if he did not call me, I would definitely call him. He happened to call me before I called him. But, anyway, I’m used to calling and announcing. This time, indeed, I did not have time to call and I was called and asked. It doesn’t mean I didn’t inform him, it means he called me before I called him. “
Vlad Voiculescu was not present at the press conference organized at Victoria Palace, which was attended by Prime Minister Florin Cîțu and the head of the Department for Emergency Situations, Raed Arafat.
The Minister of Health has not made any statements about the tragedy at the “Victor Babeș” Hospital until now, the only reaction being the post on Facebook, on Monday night.
On Tuesday morning, the Secretary of State of the Ministry of Health, Andreea Moldovan, said that Minister Vlad Voiculescu was at the “Babeș” Hospital around 17.00, which contradicts the statements of both the Minister and Arafat.
“We will provide information as we receive it. You realize we’re not hiding anything. It is a tragic situation. Everyone communicates with everyone because it’s an absolutely sad situation. You realize that no one is sitting quietly, sleeping peacefully and watching TV. Everyone is dismayed “, said Andreea Moldovan.
A malfunction at the oxygen installation of the Intensive Care Truck at Victor Babeș Hospital led to the death of three patients, on Monday evening. Five other patients were transferred.
