István Pásztor, one of the leaders of the Hungarians living in Serbia (Vajdaság), announced the decision on social media that all the border crossings will reopen between Hungary and Serbia from next Wednesday.
According to borsonline.hu, the reopened border crossings will operate as they did before the outbreak of the third wave of the pandemic from June 23.
István Pásztor added that the new decision
concerns the Horgos-Röszke (public crossing), the Rábé-Kübekháza, and the Haraszti-Bácsszentgyörgy border crossings.
Horgos-Röszke (railway) and Kelebia-Tompa were open even during the pandemic, while Bajmok-Bácsalmás, Királyhalom-Ásotthalom, and Gyála-Tiszasziget opened on June 15.
That is because the third wave of the epidemic is declining both in Hungary and in Serbia. The total number of people who got the infection by this Friday in Serbia increased by 135 and
stands at 715,442.
Over the past 24 hours, five people died because of the coronavirus.
As we reported before, in Hungary, two elderly patients with co-morbidities died over the past 24 hours, while 106 new infections were registered. So far, 5,389,058 people have received the first jab, while 4,360,313 have been fully vaccinated. The number of active infections has declined to 42,851, while hospitals are treating 289 Covid patients, 43 of whom need respiratory assistance.
There are 4,044 people in official quarantine,
while 6,033,519 tests have been officially carried out.
Since the first outbreak, 807,428 infections have been registered, while fatalities have risen to 29,950. 734,627 people have made a full recovery.
