Hungary is in contact with three Chinese vaccine makers: two privately-owned and one state-owned, Menczer said. The state-owned company is at a more advanced stage and plans mass immunization this year, he added.

Hungary could consider purchasing the vaccine after a study of the documentation by experts at the National Institute of Pharmacy and Nutrition (OGYEI), he said.

The National Public Health Centre (NKK) will also weigh in on the matter, he added.
