Romania has limited the prices of electricity, heat, natural gas, water supply, sanitation and fuels due to coronavirus.

On March 16, President Klaus Iohannis declared a state of emergency in Romania, which was approved by Parliament three days later.

According to the decree, some prices may be capped, including electricity and thermal energy, gas, water supply and fuels. The limit is the average price registered in the three months before the date when the state of emergency was declared, the document adds.

Prices cannot be increased above the level recorded at the date of the publishing of the ordinance

After the state of emergency has been declared, the Romanian government has adopted four ordinances.

According to the last one, prices of electricity, heat, natural gas, water supply, sanitation and fuels cannot be increased above the level recorded at the date of the publishing of the ordinance, Romania-insider reported.

Of course, prices can be reduced.
