People are being prevented from receiving their coronavirus jabs due to the government’s “faffing”, the leader of the opposition Democratic Coalition said in a video on Sunday.
Ferenc Gyurcsány on Facebook criticised the government for “failing to manage vaccination of 74,000 people over a single weekend”, even though they had “pledged to inoculate even as many as hundreds of thousands”. He insisted that “events of the past few days amounted to the government’s Waterloo”.
Gyurcsány also accused the government of failing to draw down the whole amount of the Moderna vaccine due to Hungary from European Union purchases, “allowing the French, Germans, and Danes to take it”.
“I could obviously use stronger words,” Gyurcsány said, adding that “what has happened is a shared disgrace; but we are not all to blame: Viktor Orbán’s government is to blame, though we will all pay the price”.
