A total of 1,793,000 people have returned the government’s National Consultation questionnaire related to coronavirus measures, Csaba Dömötör, a state secretary of the Prime Minister’s Office, said on Saturday.
The survey is the second most successful the Hungarian government has conducted to tap public opinion, Dömötör said in a video message posted on the government’s Facebook page.
Thanking respondents, he said “each and every [response] will strengthen cooperation” to suppress the coronavirus epidemic.
“We sorely need this because the second wave is already upon us. We must prepare for a protracted fight against the virus, and it is good to know which are the most important points Hungarians agree on,” Dömötör said.
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán announced the launch of the survey in May to gauge the public’s opinion on a range of issues connected with the novel coronavirus epidemic and measures to restart the economy.
