This paper treats an analysis of the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic in Romania for the silver population category aged 60-69 years. The importance of digitization and supporting the silver economy is also emphasized in mitigating the impact of this health crisis. The development of activities and sectors of activity specific to the elderly, that silver economy, could become a saving factor and turn the problem of increasing the number of the elderly into an opportunity. The conclusion is that the trend of the diseases is an increasing one and digitalization can be a challenge especially for the elderly, in the context in which the Romanian society is not ready to embrace this paradigm shift.
