Romanian Prime Minister Ludovic Orban has paid a 3000 lei fine ($A1035) for breaking his own coronavirus restrictions by not wearing a face mask and smoking indoors, APA reports citing BBC.

A picture which went viral on social media shows Orban in his office, sitting around a table with several other cabinet members, smoking a cigarette while none of them wore masks.

 

Their masks were thrown on the table.

In a statement, Orban acknowledged breaching the rules, saying some cabinet members gathered at his office after a long working day on May 25, his 57th birthday.
