Coronavirus: LMP Demands Gov’t Release Tests Data

MTI-Hungary Today 2020.05.05.

The opposition LMP party has called on the government to make sure that data on mass coronavirus testing reaches municipal leaders and protection bodies.

Unimpeded information flows are indispensable when it comes to protection against the epidemic, László Lóránt Keresztes, the centrist green party’s parliamentary group leader, told an online press conference on Tuesday. He accused the government of withholding basic data on infections.

Coronavirus: Mass Screening Suggested Long Ago to Only Come with Easing of Restrictions

He said it was also incumbent on hospitals to furnish municipal leaders with data on coronavirus infection cases.

Meanwhile, the LMP politician said it made no sense to hold school graduation exams and to ease restrictions “when the epidemic is at its peak”.
