A survey has found that 30 percent of Hungarians are in favor of the government introducing stricter measures aimed at containing the fourth wave of the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the survey, conducted by the Nézőpont Institute before new measures were announced last week, 58 percent of Hungarians believed that the measures in place before Nov. 1 had been enough to curb the spread of the virus. Meanwhile, altogether 8 percent said those measures had been too strict. According to the survey, most respondents in favor of stricter response measures were those critical of the government, with 61 percent of them wanting more protective measures and 19 percent saying that the existing ones had been enough. In contrast, 76 percent of respondents who sympathized with the government were satisfied with the measures in place and just 17 percent wanted new restrictions.
