Covid: Hungary’s Chief Medical Officer Urges Xmas Shoppers To Be Extra Careful
National chief medical officer Cecília Müller has asked the population to do “purposeful shopping” this Christmas season because of the coronavirus epidemic.

Müller told the state media on Sunday that it is dangerous to linger without a purpose in shopping malls.

She encouraged anybody who can do so to make purchases online, while those who decide to buy presents personally should decide what they want, so as to shop with a purpose in the shortest time possible.
