Prime Minister Viktor Orbán will push for speeding up the rollout of Covid-19 vaccines when he takes part in a videoconference of EU leaders discussing the pandemic.
The PM's press chief Bertalani Havasi told MTI that more and more member states are complaining of the slow rollout of vaccines, adding, however, that Hungary “is not going to wait for Brussels”.
Hungary is in talks with several vaccine manufacturers, and the country is on the verge of adding the UK’s Oxford/AstraZeneca and Russia’s Sputnik V jabs to its vaccine arsenal.
Havasi added that talks and expert inspections concerning the Chinese vaccine were also looking promising. Mass vaccinations using safe and effective vaccines are the only way for restrictions aimed at curbing the spread of coronavirus to be lifted within the foreseeable future.
