Hungarian virologist Zsolt Boldogkői would introduce further restrictions. As the coronavirus is once again becoming more widespread in Hungary, the expert says that something needs to be done. Boldogkői thinks that the Hungarian government should take action against those who are not vaccinated.
Virologist Zsolt Boldogkői would primarily restrict unvaccinated people. Boldogkői wants to achieve drastic changes. He stated in RTL News that
“After 8 or 10 o’clock in the evening, there should be a curfew for unvaccinated people.”
Furthermore, he would prohibit the use of public transport for them. However, the virologist added that vaccinated people are also able to become infected and transmit the virus. Nevertheless, they are much less likely to pass on the virus than unvaccinated people.
Boldogkői has previously commented on the coronavirus. On Televesion Szeged, he said that people still do not take the coronavirus pandemic seriously enough. Therefore, this needs to change in the thinking of the individual and society as a whole. Many people do not take the virus situation seriously because they do not receive enough information about the pandemic.
Boldogkői puts it this way: “There is a very significant group of people who could not be persuaded to vaccinate themselves with any kind of reasoning or coercion.
That’s why I’ve been stressing for a long time that we should somehow gradually introduce obligatory vaccination,”
said Boldogkői. Not only him, but also Miklós Rusvai, a professor at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, made a statement. “Vaccination is now reducing the burden on healthcare, protecting people, but we slowly need to release the virus onto the population.”
According to data, Hungary is the epicentre of the coronavirus in Central and Eastern Europe.
According to the professor, it is important to ensure that not everyone becomes infected. Therefore, the Hungarian government should introduce further restrictions. Certificates of protection should also be requested in restaurants, offices, and public institutions. These measures could increase vaccination.
