As many as 400,000 people over the age of 60 have not been vaccinated in Hungary, although those vaccinated against the coronavirus are much less likely to get sick and have much milder symptoms, said virologist Miklós Rusvai on news channel M1.
The virologist said the current figures are roughly the same as a year ago, but the number of vaccinated among those cared for in the hospital, on the ventilator and among the dead is very low.
The number of people infected will definitely increase, he added, and the vaccine will help fewer people get to the hospital, ventilator or die as a result of the disease caused by the coronavirus.
