In view of the dramatic increase in the number of coronavirus victims and newly infected persons, the strict Covid-19 measures in Hungary will be extended until 11 January, including the curfew from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. On 21 December a decision is to be made as to whether Christmas will be an exception. This was announced today by Prime Minister Viktor Orban on his Facebook page.
In view of the high risk of infection, New Year’s Eve celebrations and street balls will be banned. Starting tomorrow, Hungarians with CoV vaccination preparedness can register online. According to a survey by the Politico Institute, however, two-thirds of those questioned reject such vaccination. At the same time, only 20 percent would trust Russian and Chinese vaccines that the Hungarian government wants to offer.
According to the Minister of Human Resources, Miklos Kasler, 3,000 to 5,000 people can already take part in a clinical trial of the Russian vaccine. The minister emphasized the safety of the vaccine, which Hungarian experts have convinced themselves of. According to the new current case numbers, 116 people have died in the past 24 hours and 3,870 newly infected people have been recorded. 7,932 patients are in hospital, 674 are on artificial respiration. A total of 51,485 people are in quarantine. About 1.96 million tests were carried out.
