The Hungarian Gazette published the details of the latest epidemiological measures. With the help of this, you can know exactly where to wear a mask. However, the regulation is still unclear to many. In addition, there are those who forge the immunity card, thus reaping the benefits that are granted for the vaccinated.
In the article of telex.hu, you can read where wearing a mask is obligatory. The mask will be mandatory in shops, shopping malls, post office customer services, theatres, cinemas, museums, and sporting events.
The law is not clear to event organisers, though. In the Papp László Sports Arena, for example, a mask is also mandatory for guests, while in the Aquarium Club, all you need is an immunity certificate.
“If an event has required an immunity card before, then the guests there still do not have to wear a mask, only the employees,”
the Hungarian government responded to questions. In restaurants, swimming pools, hotels, gyms, only workers need to be in masks. Compliance with the rules is checked by the police. In addition, the military can help ensure compliance with the rules. In the case of violations, the operator will be penalised.
Origo.hu writes that there are two ways to forge an immunity certificate. In most cases, corrupt healthcare workers certify the receipt of the vaccine. However, sometimes people forge the plastic card.
Last week, a family was hospitalised with the coronavirus infection. Later, the father died. The father had an immunity certificate, but it turned out to be fake. A 54-year-old general practitioner in the village of Kótaj joined forces with a 25-year-old resident to forge vaccination cards.
The GP asked for 50 thousand forints per person to forge the vaccination papers.
In addition to forgery, the GP and their partner may also be liable in court for bribery. It is not only the vaccination papers, as people forge the plastic card as well. This fake card is only suitable for attending mass events because a more serious investigation reveals that the fake card has no trace in the records.
