The border control action group within the national board coordinating efforts against the coronavirus pandemic reviewed technical details of newly introduced “strict border protection measures”, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Facebook on Saturday morning.
Orbán warned that reining in the second wave of the epidemic called for “serious measures” in Hungary, adding that “if we cooperate as we did during the first wave, we will be able to stop the second,” which is “knocking on the door”.
The prime minister said that the measures were primarily aimed at preventing the virus from being imported from other countries, and added that “we are still in time”.
For that matter, Zoltán Kovács, state secretary for international communications, has tested negative for novel coronavirus for the second time, he said on Facebook on Saturday.
Kovács had attended a social event which was also attended by ruling Fidesz’s communications chief Istvan Hollik, who later tested positive.
With two negative test results the state secretary has been released from home quarantine.
