Hungary to reopen terraces on Saturday as COVID-19 vaccinations accelerate

BUDAPEST (Reuters) – Hungary is expected to reopen restaurant terraces and shorten a night curfew from Saturday as the vaccination campaign allows for a further reopening of the economy, Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s chief of staff said on Thursday.

Gergely Gulyas told a briefing that by Friday, 3.5 million Hungarians could be vaccinated against the novel coronavirus, which could rise to 4 million — or around 40% of the population — by early next week.
