The government will consider a proposal by the Hungarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MKIK) regarding mandatory inoculation for some against the coronavirus, Gergely Gulyás, the head of the Prime Minister's Office, said at a weekly press briefing on Thursday.
He said the government has not yet addressed the proposal, but would weigh the matter of requiring inoculation for people who work in businesses such as catering.
MKIK has proposed allowing employers in some sectors to require the inoculation of people on payroll.
Gulyás noted that new cases of the more contagious delta variant of the coronavirus have been identified in Hungary. So far, he said 23 cases of the delta and two of the gamma variant have been detected.
