Opposition DK Slams Four-Day Wait For Coronavirus Test Results
The opposition Democratic Coalition said it was “irresponsible and dangerous” that it takes four days to receive the results of coronavirus tests provided by the state.

“A great number of people have reported this problem and also complained that there is a four-day delay in testing contacts,” party spokesman Balázs Barkóczi said.

He added that the delays made it impossible to identify infected persons in time.

Barkóczi reiterated the party’s request to boost state testing capacities and make free testing available to everyone who has health insurance.
