Starting next Monday, people using shops, markets and taxis in Budapest will be mandated to wear face masks or otherwise cover their faces as part of the protection efforts against the novel coronavirus epidemic, Mayor Gergely Karácsony said in a video posted on Facebook on Tuesday.
The mayor noted that the Budapest government had earlier ordered passengers of public transport to wear masks from Monday. International experience shows that neglecting face covers in enclosed spaces enhances the danger of being infected, he said.
The Budapest public transport authority BKK is distributing 60,000 face masks to passengers, the authority has said. The Hungarian Reformed Church Aid is joining the campaign and will give out a further 30,000 masks, it said.
As we wrote before, public transport in Budapest will operate at full capacity during school-leaving exams starting in May, details HERE.
Excellent introduction that will contribute to the control and elimination of this novel corona pandemic.
Logically, from Medical science – this is a preventative action we need to support and it will assist us ALL as we move through this Challenging time in our beloved Hungary, that we live in.
Your article states that wearing face masks is effective in reducing the spread of Chinese flu. Where is that evidence?
Furthermore, how can such a thing be proven beyond reasonable doubt. Simply comparing one country with another cannot be used as proof because there are countless other variables that cannot be isolated and ignored.
Judging by the figures, and not only by that, it is a U.S. virus rather than a Chinese virus. And judging by the way some people quote the obsessive xenophobic stupidities Trump says, the biggest virus obviously remains ignorance.
