KARÁCSONY: BUDAPEST LEADERSHIP TRIED TO ESTABLISH CORONA COOPERATION WITH AUTHORITIES IN FEB

 

Budapest’s leadership, at the end of February, tried to establish a working relationship with the government’s operative board in charge of coronavirus policy, but to no avail, the city’s mayor, Gergely Karácsony, said on Facebook.
The mayor also said Prime Minister Viktor Orbán had failed to respond to his proposal regarding mass coronavirus testing free of charge. He added that Orbán’s advice that the Budapest leadership should make contact with the government’s operative board was “all well and good”, but Budapest’s own operative board had already initiated contact, only to receive the reply that: “No tasks have been elaborated at municipal level … so far; if this happens, we will inform you immediately.”
