No one should organise holidays abroad after 1 September, in particular not to the Southern countries, the Minister in Hungary said, stressing that resuming education is essential for maintaining the country’s operations, and this requires us to prevent a rise in the number of infections.
From the first of September, due to the coronavirus pandemic, it will be necessary to introduce more stringent disease control regulations than in effect at present; the Operational Group will make recommendations regarding these at next week’s cabinet meeting, Gergely Gulyás, the Minister heading the Prime Minister’s Office announced at a Governmentinfo press conference.
He said in most countries around Europe the situation is deteriorating, the epidemic situation is only stagnating in a few countries, and these trends have an impact on the Hungarian numbers at a delay of a few weeks, meaning that the easing of travel restrictions is out of the question.
He added that the government had moved Norway from the yellow category to the green zone as its most recent indicators were among the best in Europe.
Government Spokesperson Alexandra Szentkirályi indicated that the disease control deployment unit had been set up and started its operation; the government heard the Interior Minister’s report on this.
It is the duty of the unit to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus epidemic by localising infection epicentres.
