Hungarians queue for shots as COVID cases surge

Hungary reported a record high tally of 11,289 new cases on Friday (November 19) and on Monday reported 27,209 new cases and 392 deaths for the weekend and Friday combined.

People were also seen receiving their vaccine shots on Tuesday morning (November 23) at the Bethesda Children's Hospital in Budapest.

Despite people lining up for shots, Hungary's vaccination rate lags the EU average, with about 5.8 million people having had the two shots.

The government imposed mandatory mask wearing in closed spaces last week and said it would make COVID shots mandatory for all healthcare workers.
