The Hungarian companies had no other option in such a critical situation.
According to the Hungarian news portal Napi.hu, the Michelin-starred restaurant Textúra decided to close its doors due to the recent dramatic situation caused by the coronavirus.
“We are sorry to announce that – due to the coronavirus situation – from 16th March, Textúra restaurant will be closed – according to our plans for 1.5 months. We hope that our happy team can reopen its doors at the beginning of May”– as the restaurant’s management reported it: Ákos Sárközi, Tamás Horváth and Zoltán Kalocsai.
Just like in the case of Fausto restaurant, the drastic decision is explained by the significant decrease in the number of guests.
Supposedly, more closures can be expected in the forthcoming weeks based on the newly-introduced Government precautions, according to which every catering establishment must be closed at 3 pm. Besides other security measures, the government aims to stop the spread of the virus accordingly.
Due to the coronavirus emergency, the world-famous Hungarian fashion brand Nanushka also decided to close its shops in Budapest and New York – reported by the Hungarian news portal Origo.
“For Nanushka, the health of our customers and employees is of primary importance; therefore, we thought that the right decision is to put aside our business aspects and sell only online” – said Szandra Sándor who hopes that the situation will get better soon, but in the meantime, the company’s staff will be working from home.
Due to the spread of the coronavirus outbreak – on Wednesday afternoon, the government announced a state of emergency. As a result, indoor events over 100 participants, and outdoor events over 500 attendants are banned throughout the whole country.
One of Budapest’s most popular clubs, the Aquarium Club – where several Hungarian and foreign performers had been hosted – announced its closure on the club’s Facebook page, adding that all the programs have been cancelled, and the operation of the bistro is also suspended for an indefinite period – reported by Blikk.
“Based on the recent circumstances, we have come to the decision – which is the only responsible step in the current situation – that from 14th March 2020, Aquarium Club is closed for indefinite period. The decision applies to the entire institution.”
We take this action because we think that the current situation can only be resolved by cooperation, if everyone who has the opportunity adds his own in the common.
“We encourage all of you to stay at home! Now, this is the best you can do for yourself, for your friends, for your family and everyone’s health. We believe in you, and if we all stick to the regulations adopted to stop the coronavirus, or even more, hopefully we can welcome you soon again in our favourite place, the Aquarium Club. Take care of yourselves and each other! See you soon!” – as written on the club’s Facebook page.
