PM Orbán: Pandemic Expected To Spread During 'Hard Autumn, Harder Winter'
The continued spread of coronavirus will make “this autumn hard, and the winter possibly harder,” Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said, adding that the Hungarian health-care system was holding its ground.

In a video message posted on Facebook during a European Council meeting in Brussels, Orbán said that in view of the European experiences in handling the pandemic, which the summit discussed “at an overnight meeting” on Thursday, Hungarians should not plan “trips abroad in this year’s ski season”.

The Hungarian health-care system is holding its ground, Orbán said.

“We trust our doctors, nurses and epidemiologists, as well as the policemen securing our borders,” he said.
