January 29th – On the 29th local time, Hungarian regulators approved the coronavirus vaccine developed by China National Pharmaceutical Group, becoming the first EU country to approve China’s coronavirus vaccine.
Hungarian Prime Minister Orbán said on the same day that he believed most in the coronavirus vaccine produced by China and would choose to vaccinate it when it arrived.
According to reports from “Hungary Today” and Reuters on the 29th, Orbán said in an interview that he was confident in China’s vaccine, because China knows the most about the novel coronavirus.
He said that because the procurement of vaccines in the EU has been slow, it is necessary for Hungary to purchase other vaccines that have proved effective.
Whether it is to choose vaccines produced by Western or Eastern countries, it should not become a political issue.
Orbán mentioned that the number of people in Hungary who can be vaccinated will double after the arrival of the Chinese vaccine.
He said that the agreement will be signed soon, and he believes in the Chinese vaccine most and will choose to vaccinate.
