As we reported before, the number of people inoculated against the coronavirus reached 5.5 million yesterday in Hungary, which allowedthe further easing of restrictions. Based on the statistics, no one with Covid-19 has died on Thursday and only 76 of those suffering from Covid-19 were hospitalised without respiratory assistance, and 22 were on ventilators yesterday morning.
Therefore all restrictions on shops were lifted and masks are no longer mandatory indoors or outdoors. Furthermore, mask-wearing on public transport are also no longer mandatory, though the rule
remains in force in social care settings and hospitals.
Shops, hotels, leisure facilities and cultural events can be entered with a pre-booked seat without an immunity certificate. One hundred people are allowed to attend private events, up from 50, and the limit for weddings will go up from 200 to 400 people.
restrictions will still apply in the case of sporting, music and dance events,
as well as concerts held indoors. PM Viktor Orbán said on concerns about the worldwide spread of the delta variant that Hungary was fully prepared for a possible fourth wave of the epidemic.
On the subject of the possibility of third booster shots, PM Orbán said yesterday that experts would assess whether a third vaccine could be administered, and he appealed to the public for patience.
