PM Orbán was joined by the Czech Republic’s Andrej Babiš, Mateusz Morawiecki of Poland and Igor Matovič of Slovakia to discuss with Merkel ways to repair the economic damage caused by the epidemic.

They also agreed that Europe’s healthcare services would have to be much better prepared to handle the second wave of the epidemic expected in the autumn. The next Visegrad summit will be held in the Czech Republic in early June.
