Health expert says Hungary needs to take action against Coronavirus

Epidemiologist János Szlávik tells state broadcaster M1 that the number of Hungarians being hospitalized due to Covid-19 continues to to increase, and that he believes that the fourth wave will peak in Hungary in November or December.

Szlávik notes that since the delta variant is more infectious than previous variants of Coronavirus, it is hard to predict how bad it will get.

The epidemiologist urges everyone who is eligible to receive a vaccine shot, saying it reduces the chance of serious illness due to Covid by 80-90%. Regarding whether Hungary will need to introduce further restrictions, Szlávik stated that it is “absolutely certain that something needs to be done.” [HVG]
