There are realistic chances that kindergartens, schools and secondary schools can reopen on April 19, Viktor Orbán told public broadcaster Kossuth Radio’s morning programme.
He said the opening times of shops are planned to be extended in order to avoid long queues and the curfew will be adjusted accordingly. The operative board in charge of epidemic response was discussing the details of the regulations, Orbán added.
He said that rather than predicting when the third wave would peak, the main question was when the numbers would start decreasing, but “nobody can tell that”.
Orbán said the most difficult weeks of the pandemic were under way and the third wave was caused by the British variant, which is able to infect three times more people than previous variants.
He asked young people to observe the regulations, also because of their own safety.
