Hungary Relaxed Strict Anti-Coronary Measures in Early May
Hungary relaxed strict anti-coronary measures in early May. Prime Minister Viktor Orbán announced the easing on Friday and said he expects his country’s economy to recover quickly.
“I’m not among the optimistic people, but I’m not a pessimist either,” he told the state radio. “I expect a quick recovery.”
Hungary will follow the route that neighbouring Austria also took. Schools and companies are reopening, and catering establishments also have the prospect of opening shortly, says Orbán.
For the relaxation, measures had to be taken in the medical field. The equipment has been purchased, and thousands of hospital beds have been cleared for a possible increase in the number of corona cases when the country reopens.
“As of next week, there will be no more negative scenario that we are not prepared for,” said the prime minister.
“We haven’t been through yet, but have prepared for the worst, so now we can experiment in real life. We have to set it up smartly.”
