Gov't places muni council clinics under hospital admin
Hungary's government has placed local council out-patient clinics under the administration of hospitals during the state of emergency in a decree published in the official gazette Magyar Közlöny on Tuesday.
The measure was taken in the interest of establishing more efficient healthcare defense, balancing out the burden on healthcare workers, and ensuring the implementation of Hungary's vaccination rollout, the Coronavirus Press Centre told Hungarian news agency MTI.
Hospitals have come under greater pressure during the third wave of the pandemic, and it is important for local council-run clinics and their staff to participate in pandemic defense, as needed, taking on tasks in a coordinated manner, the center said.
