May / Full Recovery?
The tragedy in the Collective club in Bucharest led to an acute political crisis in Romania in 2015. A fire resulted in the immediate deaths of 27 and severe injuries to 180 people. Several dozen people with non-lethal burns died in the hospital. A doctor urged the media to investigate this case and find out the causes of these deaths. The journalists not only found the answers, but also revealed large-scale corruption in the healthcare system. The new health minister is eager to communicate with the media, and tries to reform the system while overcoming significant obstacles.
