MTI-Hungary Today 2021.05.21.

Hungary will partially lift a ban on hospital visits from Monday, the chief medical officer has said.

Visitors, however, will still not be allowed to visit patients being treated for Covid-19, Cecília Müller told an online press briefing. Patients in other units will only be allowed one visitor a day, who will have to present an immunity certificate and stay for not more than an hour, she said.

As regards vaccines, Müller said Hungary is scheduled to receive 54,800 doses of the Moderna jab on Thursday and 55,200 doses of AstraZeneca, all of which are to be used as second shots.
