In view of the current pandemic situation, the government has decided to extend the coronavirus-related state of medical preparedness until June 18, 2022, the human resources ministry said on Thursday.
“The prolongation is necessary because the coronavirus
pandemic is still prevalent around the world. It is prevalent in Europe and in Hungary, the number of infections is high and the Omicron variant is present in the country,” the ministry said in a statement.
The government and the operative board in charge of pandemic response will continue to closely monitor the situation and, if necessary, take additional measures to enhance protection, it said. The state of medical preparedness will allow for swift government response and decisions in the interest of protecting people’s health, the statement added.
