Human Resources Minister Miklos Kasler said on Wednesday that Hungary had successfully completed the first phase of its efforts against the novel coronavirus epidemic. The country's health care system can now "gradually and carefully" return to its pre-epidemic routine, Kasler told reporters. Hungary's health-care professionals have gained a lot of experience during the epidemic, Kasler said, but added that "we have to reconsider our approach to various diseases, the structure of Hungarian health care, as well as the role of national institutes, medical universities, and regional health centres". He noted the government's national health programme, which "provides a new approach to be followed by [changes in] structure".
