The exclusive interview was recorded before, but Kossuth Rádió published it only this morning. PM Viktor Orbán said that the fourth wave was banging on the door of Hungary as well. He added that the government was working all summer to organise vaccination in schools.
According to 444.hu, he said that one gets the infection out of 500 inoculated people. That is why everybody should trust the vaccines. “The fourth wave will find all those who did not accept the jab,” he highlighted.
Regarding new restrictions, he said that
the government would like to evade obligatory mask-wearing
because that did not help, only the vaccine. Therefore, the government will launch a new information campaign, but PM Orbán encouraged everybody to convince one more person to accept the jab.
Yesterday, Gergely Gulyás, the Minister of the Prime Minister’s Office, highlighted at the government info that the fourth wave of Covid-19 has started in Western Europe and would arrive in Hungary, too.
those not yet inoculated “are very likely to get ill,” while only 0.2 per cent of those vaccinated are likely to get sick, “and with much lighter symptoms”.
The government is not planning on another lockdown, he said, adding that “restrictions will not be needed in education or at work either”.
the country can await the fourth wave “with relative calmness”.
