DK proposes medicine voucher for seniors

The opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) has proposed that the government should provide all pensioners with a one-off voucher of 10,000 forints (EUR 28), which they could use in pharmacies.

DK MEP Klara Dobrev told a press conference on Thursday that pensioners were especially impacted by the pandemic, and they were also hard hit by rising prices.

Dobrev insisted that fruit and vegetable prices were “nearly prohibitive”, adding that the past few months have also seen “soaring” medicine and vitamine prices.
