Hungary will procure a vaccine for the novel coronavirus and it will be made available to all Hungarians who want it, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has said in an interview to commercial broadcaster TV2. Orbán said that Hungary had successfully defeated the epidemic once and would do so again.
In the pre-recorded interview broadcast on Sunday evening, Orbán said, “Brussels estimates the virus will be ready by 2021, while the Americans expected it to be ready by the end of the year”.
“We will be free from this misery, and we will endure it until then,” Orbán said.
He said the country’s health-care system and economy would function. “We won’t retreat; we’ll preserve Hungary’s chance of coming out of this crisis fortified.”
