Opposition Jobbik is calling on the government to consider banning all in-door events with more than 1,000 participants in order to fight the spread of the new coronavirus.

The organisers of outdoor events should also analyse the risks involved and consider ways to prevent “conditions that enhance the risk of infection”, Jobbik deputy leader László György Lukács told a press conference.

“We want everyone to keep as safe as possible but at the same time, we want to be able to properly commemorate the greatest national holiday, March 15,” Lukács said.

“On the cusp of the coronavirus epidemic”, resources must be focused on prevention, protection and disseminating information instead of government communications, he added.

Lukács pledged Jobbik’s support to the government on the issue, provided “[the government] works in a credible and precise manner and keeps Hungarians duly informed.”
