“Restrictions cannot be lifted until mass vaccination begins,” said Prime Minister Viktor Orbán this morning adding that a Hungarian vaccine factory will be built in Debrecen, which will reduce the country's vulnerability in the future.
While the United States has already vaccinated more than 10 million citizens, and the UK is now well beyond 3 million, some critics say that EU member states are lagging behind in terms of administering the lifesaving jab. So, what’s really happening? Has the EU reserved enough vaccines? Did they arrive late to the party? Why does the supply seem so unreliable? These are just a few of the tough questions for Brussels.
Only a few vaccines have been received so far to vaccinate just 80,000 people, and the virus situation in Europe remains serious, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said, explaining why the current epidemiological measures had been extended until February 1.
The vaccine is on the horizon; we just need to hold on a little longer, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in his morning interview on Kossuth Rádió. The prime minister also said the VAT on food delivery was reduced to 5 percent, plus he reemphasized that Hungary does not support the legislation drafted by the European Parliament and the German presidency, as "it would turn the European Union into the Soviet Union."
Inspections are ongoing across the country, and everything will be shut down if the new coronavirus rules are not followed. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel, as a vaccine may be available in Hungary in 90 days. Regarding the latest EP decision, the PM noted that Hungary has the resources it needs for the next two years. Pertaining to the U.S. elections, he stated: “Every country is sovereign.”
