Nowadays, there is more and more news regarding the coronavirus epidemic and the possibilities of reopening. As the number of people infected and the number of deaths increase, the Hungarian government must react. There are press conferences and announcements every day, and it is hard to keep up with the changes. We will now summarise the most important news from the latest announcement.
Government spokesman Gergely Gulyás held an extraordinary press conference on Friday afternoon. At this conference, he spoke about the recent decisions of the Hungarian government related to the restrictive measures currently in force. Gulyás highlighted that because of the third wave of the epidemic, Hungary cannot open.
All the measures currently in force until 29 March will be extended.
The exact deadline has not been revealed at the moment, but we can definitely expect another 2-3 weeks of the current restrictions. The Hungarian government will make its decisions taking into account the proposals of the operative board created when the coronavirus pandemic broke out. For those who want to see clearly amid the overflow of information, we have gathered the most important information about the possible new measures with the help of Portfolio. However, it is important to note that these can only enter into force when enough people have received at least the first dose of the vaccine. What can we expect the first stage of a future reopening to include?
The third wave of the virus is even stronger than before. Thus, the above statements may still change in the future depending on epidemiological data.
