After the announcement of the recent epidemiological measures, the increase in traffic did not even come close to the level experienced during the first wave of the epidemic, according to CBA's communications director Attila Fodor, writes origo.hu.

Fodor said that on Thursday, March 4, after the announcement that new measures were to be implemented, the turnover of CBA stores increased by 10-15% on average.

The following day, the increase was 20%, and 30% the day after that. But the intensity of shopping started to decrease again on Sunday, March 7 and was only slightly higher than usual from March 8, when the restrictions took effect.
