In an article published by the daily Magyar Nemzet, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán pledged to protect the health and lives of people but he also vowed to keep the country functioning. The elderly must be protected while keeping kindergartens, schools, and workplaces open, he said, calling on everyone to observe safety rules.
Hungary is better prepared to confront coronavirus now than when the disease first emerged in the spring, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán told lawmakers.
In a long essay in the leading pro-government daily, PM Viktor Orbán suggests that the next elections will be decisive for Hungary’s independence. His foes, he suggests, stand for submission to international liberalism.
A failure by young people to follow the rules could endanger the elderly and the sick, the prime minister warned in his speech to lawmakers. “Now the effectiveness of our defence against the pandemic really depends on us,” he said.
