Hungary announces new restrictions, schools & non-essential shops closed amid Covid-19 third wave fears
Budapest has announced a series of new measures to stem the spread of Covid-19, noting that despite inoculating people quicker than the EU average, these efforts arent enough to prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed.
“If we didn’t close now, the opening would be postponed,” Gergely Gulyas, the prime minister’s chief of staff said on Thursday, adding the economy “needs to be closed not only to protect people’s lives, but in order to open it sooner.”
The restrictions include closing non-essential shops from March 8 to March 22, while grocery stores, pharmacies and gas stations will remain open. The services sector will also be suspended for the two-week period, with the exception of private health care. Gyms will be closed too, but professional athletes can continue to train behind closed doors.
Parks will remain open, and everyone is asked to work from home whenever possible. Masks will also be mandated in all public places.
