Fidesz politician and former mayor of Debrecen Lajos Kósa can’t seem to catch a break these days, it seems.

After coming under fire recently for revealing to reporters on Thursday that the government had indeed purchased the Pegasus surveillance software alleged by investigative outlet Direkt36, Kósa announced that he was being treated for the coronavirus.

A short post written in the third-person on the politician’s Facebook page says, “Caught the coronavirus. Being cared for in Kenézy [Hospital in Debrecen]. Tolerating it. Will be over it in a few days. Doctors say it would have been nasty without the vaccine.”

Kósa added that the virus is “hitting hard,” so anyone who hasn’t vaccinated themselves already should do so right away.
