So far 232,000 people have filled in the government’s “National Consultation” survey launched a month ago in connection with the novel coronavirus and restarting the economy, a government official said on Wednesday.
“The number indicates that interest in the survey is already high since there is still a ways to go until the deadline for returning the questionnaires,” Csaba Dömötör, state secretary at the Prime Minister’s Cabinet Office, told a press conference.

The government’s survey includes thirteen questions in connection with the novel coronavirus, restarting the economy and migration.
He said that in light of the current situation around the novel coronavirus and the absence of a vaccine, Hungary must prepare for a potential second wave of the epidemic.
“We can do this most effectively if we know which of the government’s measures enjoy the most support among the public, and the survey will give us a clearer picture in this regard,” Dömötör said.
