Human Resources Minister Miklós Kásler said he could “feel for the first time in a long time that doctors and nurses are relieved and very hopeful”, after visiting two hospitals in Sárvár and Szombathely, in western Hungary. Kásler said he had visited several hospitals in Hungary over the past few weeks in order to get personal impressions about the hospital equipment and the way health-care staff are meeting the challenges during the pandemic. “I had the same impressions in Sárvár: according to the people working here, all the equipment needed is at their disposal, and they believe that the pandemic has entered a declining phase,” he said. He said the most important task of the Sárvár hospital is to perform vaccinations and to prepare to provide post-Covid care. He added that the Szombathely hospital will play a significant role in the national programme for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
