Romania has a very COVID-related mortality rate (when compared to the population) and the main cause seems to be the low vaccination rate:
The country is paying the price for having the European Union’s second-lowest vaccination rate, reporting 561 fatalities in the past 24 hours. That brings the toll to more than 42,000. New infections, at almost 19,000 since Monday, also reached a new high.
As a consequence, the head of the Department for Emergency Situations (DSU) is asking for stronger measures against COVID-related fake news:
(..) with all the right to free speech would cut off the microphone of everyone who comes and misinforms and tells people not to get vaccinated
The implementation details of "cutting off the microphone" are not provided, but I can imagine creating a law that limits the freedom of speech so that anti-vaccination or COVID-denial is against the law. That would be very similar to laws that prohibit hate speech.
The justification would be rather simple in this case, since promoting anti-vaccination is tightly linked to a significant death toll (both direct as reported COVID cases and indirect due to the medical system being overwhelmed).
As a side note, Turkmenistan has banned the use of the word 'Coronavirus'.
