Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán expects his country to declare “victory over the corona pandemic” in April.
Orbán said on state radio that the first batch of vaccines against the virus is expected in late December or early January. His government is also talking to China and Russia about purchasing such resources.
According to the prime minister, this means that in the spring, a choice may be possible from two or three vaccines.
Worldwide work is going on at a rapid pace on such vaccines. About 200 are in development.
Countries meanwhile are trying to slow down the spread of the virus by partly shutting down public life. Hungary does not go as far as some other EU member states.
The schools and shops in the country are still open, and the public is still allowed to attend football matches.
