In the capital, Budapest, where 70% of Hungary’s 2,700 cases of coronavirus have been diagnosed, the strict requirements of the quarantine regime will continue to apply, said Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s Cabinet Minister Gergeji Guiyash.
Seniors from all over the country are advised to stay at home, but outside of Budapest, shops, open-air museums, open-air restaurants, beaches and saunas will be open on Monday.
“We can try to restart Hungary, but we must act gradually and on a strict schedule,” Orbans said in a video post on Facebook.
Testing will be extended, but the schools will be closed by the end of May, and events with more than 500 people will be banned until at least August 15, Guyas said.
The training of professional athletes can resume on Monday.
There are 312 Covid-19-related deaths in a country of almost ten million people.
