The government has decided to maximise the prices of petrol and diesel at 480 forints (EUR 1.3) per litre from November 15, the prime minister’s chief of staff said on Thursday.
“Petrol and diesel could be cheaper than 480 forints but not more expensive,” Gergely Gulyás told a regular press briefing. Putting a cap on fuel prices could help the economy and contribute to reducing inflation, too, he said.
He added that the level of
antibodies begins to decrease six months after a second shot of a Covid vaccine and may drop drastically after 7-8 months,
which is why the government advises Hungarians to get a booster jab.
The current, fourth wave of the pandemic is different from the previous waves because “we this time have a weapon to fight the virus and this weapon is vaccination,” Gergely Gulyás told a regular press briefing. He said that one in 100 people inoculated against Covid will get ill, but with much milder symtomps than those who have not received any shots at all.
