The pandemic situation is no better than it was a month ago and it is "expected to become much more difficult", Novák said.

The government will take decisions on the matter on Tuesday and Wednesday, she added.

Novák said Hungary is watching closely the situation in Austria, as it did in the spring.

Austria started a partial lockdown on Tuesday that will last until the end of November.
