"If the closures announced yesterday last only two weeks, growth rates above 5% can be maintained this year," said Orsolya Nyeste, senior analyst at Erste Bank.

Looking at the baseline scenario,  GDP growth could have been 5.5%, but recent restrictions are sure to make that worse. According to the expert, with a longer closure period, it is no longer likely that the said 5% dynamics could be maintained.

Péter Virovácz, senior analyst at ING Bank, is more pessimistic, and expects GDP growth to fall from 5-6% to 3-4%.
