Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, who last sat in the studio on December 10 last year, did not give an interview on Kossuth radio for more than a month. Then, among other things, he talked about the need to change the budget to be able to increase the pension by five percent, but everyone involved can be sure that they will have access to the higher amount, even for 13-month pensions. The prime minister also announced on the show that vaccinations for 5-11 year olds will begin on December 15th.
The following week, the interview was canceled due to the Prime Minister’s talks in Brussels, and then the festive period came. Now, however, everything is back to normal, Viktor Orbán speaks at Kossuth Radio from half past eight on the government announcements of the last few days and the measures to be taken.
The prime minister announced this week that six foods will be priced at the October level. He will certainly talk about this, the election timetable and the epidemic situation, as experts say the epidemic in Hungary could turn to extreme speed in the coming weeks due to the omicron variant.
Gergely Gulyás spoke at the government’s information on Thursday that the vaccination card will be linked to the third vaccination from mid-February and that the quarantine period will be shortened to seven days, after five days a negative test can be released in case of asymptomaticness.
