Budapest, January 8 (MTI) – Hungary’s homeless services system has passed the “pressure test” of extreme weather conditions, state secretary Károly Czibere told MTI on Sunday.
Czibere noted that homeless shelters have been enlarged, and said that there was still “an abundance” of beds to accommodate more people. In the provinces most shelters are full, he said, but added that new arrivals would “not be rejected”.
Speaking on public television M1 earlier on Sunday, the state secretary said that nobody had died due to the extreme cold during the past two nights.
Two homeless frozen to death?
The police didn’t confirmed the cause of death but the police officers fund two dead bodies in Budapest.
