Orbán: All conditions in place for treating patients in Hungary
In a video on Facebook page uploaded on Saturday morning following a meeting of the operative board in charge of coronavirus-related measures, Orban noted that the second wave of the epidemic was under way “with strong momentum”.
He said hospital capacity is reviewed regularly at operational board meetings in terms of whether there are a sufficient number of beds, doctors and staff, as well as the amount of equipment such as ventilators.
The prime minister said additional hospitals set up to handle the a surge of patients were available, but for now there was no need to open them.
Orban said it was likely that the number of patients would grow. “We’ll have to open them at some point, but we still have a safe amount of reserves,” he said.
