The epidemic gets worse in Hungary, but Miklós Rusvai would not reintroduce obligatory mask-wearing. However, he said that Hungarians coming from Romania for Fidesz’s peace march on October 23 might be dangerous because the situation there is much worse.
Rusvai said that the mask is crucial because there are other respiratory diseases like the flu, and wearing one can help avoid sickness. He said that the number of new infections would rise. But its peak will be much lower than during the third wave last year. He added that he would not make vaccination obligatory. However, he highlighted that those inoculated protect not only themselves but their relatives, friends, too.
He said that inviting Hungarians living in Romania to Fidesz’s peace march is risky. Rusvai added that the hunting world expo and the opposition primaries did not worsen the situation.
