Virologist Gábor Kemenesi told Inforádió that the virus would not become weaker after the fourth wave. Furthermore, the next wave could start in Hungary in the summer instead of the autumn. He added that all epidemic curves are growing again in Western Europe, and Hungary will not be able to evade the trend.
According to portfolio.hu, the Hungarian government still has time to act. Mr Kemenesi advises everybody to get the vaccine, which is the only way out of this situation. He added that
the virus would find everybody.
There would be no exceptions, Mr Kemenesi highlighted. He also said that the obligation to wear face masks would return since we would have to protect those who had not been inoculated.
