Unfounded, irresponsible fake news that hotels and restaurants in Hungary have to keep them closed until Pentecost – wrote in the statement of the Government Information Center on Tuesday evening.
As we wrote today (Hungarian restaurants and hotels should not expect to re-open before this May), according to 24.hu, Tamás Flesch, president of MSZÉSZ ( Association of Hungarian Hotels and Restaurants) said,
“It is hard to imagine that they would be able to re-open before May. Not only in Hungary, in other European countries, as well, as all information on vaccination and the pandemic shows that restrictions will remain in effect for a while.”
He added that everyone involved in this sector needs to be prepared, for which they have sent a letter around to all hotels and restaurants to inform them. The letter said,
according to the information provided by the government and the Association of Hungarian Travel Agencies , current restrictions will probably remain in effect until Whitsun (23 May this year).
Tuesday evening the Government Information Center denies this long restrictions and false statement, and they critized the EU again:
Vaccines from Brussels sources are not enough to launch a mass vaccination, so the Hungarian government is also negotiating with China and Russia to purchase vaccines in bulk so that the mass vaccination can start in Hungary as soon as possible!
