“On Friday morning, the Hungarian Medicines and Health Department received the Chinese vaccine documents. Hungarian experts can now start to inspect the Chinese vaccine to determine whether to approve its domestic use.” “Vaccine safety is not a political or ideological issue, but a political or ideological issue.

Reuters extended its report that Hungary has become accustomed to deviating from the EU’s collective guidelines.
On November 16, Hungary and Poland voted to reject the EU’s budget for the next seven years (2021-2027), which totals 1.8 trillion euros. This has led to the failure of the European economic reconstruction plan after the 750 billion euros epidemic. The reason for the opposition of these two countries is that a clause in the budget bill stipulates that the condition for obtaining funds is “respect for the rule of law.” For many years, Hungary and Poland have been arguing with the EU over the rule of law.
Hungary has also been watching the Russian vaccine project, sending experts to check its production, and may also arrange for thousands of volunteers to test the Russian “satellite-V” COVID-19 vaccine. The European Commission has said that Hungary’s plan to import and possibly use Russian vaccines has raised safety concerns and may undermine public trust in vaccines.
However, under Cialto’s Facebook post where he announced China’s vaccine news, some netizens left a message: “14 million Hungarians trust the Hungarian government.”
