Gergely Gulyás, Head of the Prime Minister's Office, said the speed at which Hungary is implementing its vaccination plan is “outstanding” in comparison with the rest of the European Union.
According to MTI, Gulyás said Hungary and Malta are at the forefront of Europe’s vaccination drive. Thanks to the shots, the number of new cases has been “radically reduced” and the number of deaths is decreasing, he added.
The minister said that by Friday, the number of inoculated Hungarians is expected to have reached 4 million, and the government may lift further restrictions. The night-time curfew will start an hour later, at midnight, and shops will be allowed to stay open until 11pm. Eateries can also open their indoor sections and serve customers with vaccination certificates and minors in their company until 11pm.
Gulyás added that hotels will open to people with vaccination certificates and their children, adding that leisure venues such as zoos, museums, cinemas, theaters, and libraries, may also be visited with the certificates. Gyms and swimming pools will be available to certificate-holders and athletes. Certificate-holders and children in their company will be allowed to attend sports events.
