Hungary has the most vaccines in the European Union per capita, Gergely Gulyás, the Prime Minister’s chief of staff, said on Thursday.
At an impromptu briefing, Gulyás noted that the fast-spreading British variant of coronavirus is present in Hungary and the number of cases is steadily rising once again. Only efficient vaccination will nip a third wave in the bud, he said.
“Hungary today has the best and the most vaccines in the EU relative to the population,” he said, urging the public to register to be inoculated.
Gulyás also urged people to take part in the government’s National Consultation survey to gauge people’s opinions on how and when to relax restrictions.
“I encourage everyone to take the opportunity to express their views,” he said. “No matter how difficult the situation is the government can make a good decision with the support of the people behind it.”
