Mr Orban s press chief said Hans Kluge had expressed his appreciation for Hungary s pandemic response.
PM Orban and Mr Kluge agreed that the economy and life should be restarted gradually. The director reiterated his former opinion that schools should be closed last and opened first, and Hungary s premier outlined his plans to restart the country.
Hungary s vaccination drive is exemplary, Hans Kluge underlined, adding that vaccination is considered a life-saving measure.
