“…In a nutshell, we suggest that, in Romania, local cycles of transmission were preceded by imported cases, predominantly from Italy. Our research is in line with other previous articles illustrating case imports from Italy, such as Bolivia [17], Brazil [18], Austria, Croatia and Spain [19]. For Romania, this case-importation route is not surprising as Italy has been, for at least the last two decades, the main migration destination for Romanians.…”

“…This is analogue with multiple previous studies in Egypt (Abdelha z et al 2020) and Pakistan (Mirza et al 2020). Although many studies reported that a signi cant percentage of the infected people were young (Chen et al 2020;Bialek et al 2020;Escalera-Antezana et al 2020), our study has shown that less than half of the participants -who are considered young-thought that they can be infected with COVID-19, and nearly one third thought they were invincible from the disease. Based on the results of the study, a molding of knowledge about COVID 19 into a positive attitude was clearly observed.…”

“…These alarming levels of spread and severity of the disease have therefore raised the bar for the entire world to manage this stressful crisis and urged the World health organization to o cially characterize COVID-19 as a pandemic (WHO/Europe) Concerning the symptoms of COVID-19, some infected people may not experience any symptoms, whereas others may have mild symptoms. Around 80% of patients recover without needing any special treatment while one out of six patients develop more severe symptoms, including but not limited to di culty breathing, these patients are most likely to be elderly or with underlying medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes (Ecdc; Wang et al 2020;Zhang et al 2020b) Additionally, young people are not invincible against coronavirus; world data have shown that a large number of the patients were young, among which many needed hospitalization (Chen et al 2020;Bialek et al 2020;Escalera-Antezana et al 2020).…”

“…Escalera-Antezana et al evaluated 152 subjects in a retrospective cross-sectional analysis and found that 12 (7.9%) of them returned positive results by real-time reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCR) [14]. The median age of the infected subjects was 39 years (IQR: 25 -43) and half of them were male.…”
