PM Orbán: Conditions Now Right For Restarting Life In Hungary
The conditions for getting the country up and running again are there but protection measures must not be stopped, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in a radio interview on Friday.

He noted that two weeks ago restrictions were eased in the provinces. Now Pest County is joining the rest of the country, he added.

Budapest, however, “is the big question”, since it is in a two week delay compared to the countryside - Orbán told public broadcaster Kossuth Radio, noting that the highest number of registered infections and fatalities have taken place in the capital.

The prime minister insisted that if “bad decisions” are made in Budapest they are hardest to “correct” here.

Orbán said at the same time that the number of registered infections was declining and the conditions for restarting life were also in place in Budapest.

“But everyone must behave responsibly,” he said.

The PM said he will consult non-government experts on Saturday morning before deciding in the afternoon on which steps should be taken in Budapest.
