According to Miklos Kasler, the Minister of Human Resources in charge of healthcare, the number of daily infections might reach 13,000, the number of hospitalizations could range from 8,000 to 9,000, and over 200 people could die each day during the ongoing fifth wave of the pandemic.

Kasler told Info radio that he was "quite convinced" that a fourth vaccine dose was required and that the government was prepared for it. The Minister noted that while the recommended time between the third and fourth vaccine doses may be extended, additional testing are needed to decide when a fourth vaccine dosage may be given.
