Mayor Gergely Karácsony: Playgrounds In Budapest Closed
The city of Budapest will close down its playgrounds due to the coronavirus epidemic, Mayor Gergely Karácsony told an online press conference.

The mayor said live on Facebook that objects at playgrounds could communicate the new virus and asked parents to keep children away from those facilities that cannot be physically shut down.

Karácsony also said that parking would not be made free in the city, arguing that though there are fewer cars running, there are as many as usual or even more parking.
