MTI-Hungary Today 2021.04.22.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán held talks with WHO Europe Regional Director Hans Kluge on Hungary’s vaccination drive, efforts to restart the economy and ties with WHO in his office on Thursday, the prime minister’s press chief told MTI.

Kluge appreciated Hungary’s measures to contain the epidemic, Bertalan Havasi said.

Orbán and Kluge agreed that the economy and everyday life should be restarted gradually. The prime minister outlined Hungary’s plans for reopening.

The WHO director reiterated that schools should be closed last and reopened first. He praised Hungary’s “exemplary” vaccination drive, adding that vaccines should be handled as the most important means to save lives.

Orbán and Kluge agreed that vaccination should not be seen as a geopolitical issue because it is the only tool for subduing the epidemic and all vaccines are effective.
