Budapest to remember Covid victims with minute of silence
Karacsony said the gesture is also intended as a sign of appreciation for the work of frontline workers such as doctors, residents, nurses and paramedics.
He added that the “remembrance does not aim to aggravate, but to mitigate the increasingly elevated tone of political debates”.
Karacsony said public transport in the capital would also observe the minute of silence. He invited Hungarians who live outside of Budapest to join the minute of silence, too, on March 24.
