Gergely Karácsony, the mayor of Budapest, has advised Budapest residents to continue to observe Covid-19 related restrictions still in force in the city. “Although I am delighted to learn that no new Covid-19 infection cases were reported in Budapest today, we can still not sit back. Coronavirus will be with us either as an epidemic or as a threat until a vaccine is developed,” Karácsony said in a Facebook entry. He said an alarming increase in the number of infections in neighbouring countries mandates vigilance and compliance with regulations that include wearing a mask in public transport, shops and pharmacies. Karácsony further advised Hungarians to spend their summer holidays in their country so as to help revive the domestic tourism and catering industry.
