Coronavirus – Jobbik Calls for Nationwide Mandatory Home Quarantine
MTI-Hungary Today 2020.03.21.
The opposition Jobbik party on Saturday called on the government to introduce a mandatory, nationwide home quarantine to protect Hungarians from the new coronavirus.
Márton Gyöngyösi, the conservative party’s MEP, insisted that Viktor Orbán’s government sees the epidemic as a tool to strengthen and expand its power, “which was shaken in last year’s municipal and European parliamentary elections”.
Fortunately, Hungary is among the countries where the virus emerged relatively late, so it has the opportunity to learn from other countries’ examples, Gyöngyösi said. A growing number of states recognise home quarantine as an effective method to fight the spread of the virus, he added.
