Restrictions remain. The residents and recent graduates have been transferred.
According to Gergely Gulyás, thanks to vaccines, we are only separated from relief for weeks or months, but we can’t talk about opening yet.
The government is thinking of a multi-stage opening, which will be made depending on the vaccination coverage.
Experts say we are almost at the peak of the third wave. We are reaching the peak of the wave by the end of March, the head of the Prime Minister’s Office said.
The first relieving steps are expected in a few weeks.
There will be no area-based restrictions: There is an integrated defense across the country. No decision has been made on area-based restrictions at yesterday’s government meeting – Gergely Gulyás replied to Wednesday news.
The restrictive measures currently in force will remain for another week starting from today.
Viktor Orbán highlighted on Friday that in the third wave of the epidemic, experts do not recommend mitigation because the dramatic data does not yet allow that. The prime minister said that 213 people had died, 1,174 are on a breathing device, and more than nine thousand people were being hospitalized.
An important step forward is that the residents, recent graduates have been vaccinated and transferred. They are ready to assist medical personnel in epidemiological defense. They have a pivotal role, as the most significant element of defense is to have an adequate number of staff next to the intensive beds.
Viktor Orbán spoke specifically to the youth to help the defense so they can have a free summer.
The Operational Board is preparing the reopening plan, which depends on when the vaccination reaches two or two and a half or three or three and a half or four million people. He highlighted that once every person over the age of sixty is vaccinated, a restart can be started.
The government will decide whether there will be a specific epidemiological act for the Easter holidays in a week, but “the girls and women will be sprinkled,” the prime minister said.
Gergely Gulyás, the minister, emphasized that if enough people register to be vaccinated and vaccination is fast, there is a chance to avoid another wave.
