The number of cases will increase
A significant part of the infections are caused by the new, omicron variant, so the number of patients may increase significantly in the coming weeks, said Gergely Gulyás, Minister of the Prime Minister, who provided information on the first government meeting of the year.
The growing number of cases does not lead to a proportionately increasing number of patients in hospitals and deathshe pointed out.
He described the number of cases per day, which rose to over 9,000 and could be even higher in the near future. In France, the number of new infections was 360,000.

Economic growth never seen before
Gergely Gulyás said that according to the November and December data, last year’s GDP growth could be between 6.5 and 7 percent, which is the highest value since 1990. This value could have been even higher without the global chip shortage.

The government also discussed the issue of a child protection referendum and an election.

Arranging the two votes at the same time will save more than seven billion forints.

Mark-Zay would cancel his 13-month pension
This is the biggest guarantee possible, Goulash said of Origo’s question that in light of the fact that Péter Márki-Zay would immediately repeal the Child Protection Act, might the referendum on April 3 be enough to prevent this? Even in the event of a successful referendum, the European Commission will have a say in child protection issues related to the restoration fund – Gulyás said that this could only be concluded by the parliamentary elections.
The current official ceiling for petrol prices means a saving of 40-45 forints for motoristsGoulash said to another question. That was an arrogant remark – did the minister say to our question that he thinks it is a good solution for people to buy a smaller car in this situation?
The Gyurcsánys have abolished it, while Péter Márki-Zay considers it a bad decision, from which everyone draws the right conclusion, the minister said in connection with the 13-month pension.
This is how many will receive the PIT refund in February
In a European cultural circle, we are not used to saying what the left-wing prime minister said about Judaism.Goulash said on another question.
In this country, the minimum wage has risen radically only under right-wing governments, Goulash said on another question. Under the eight-year rule of the left, it has grown from 50,000 to just 73,000.
As far as the plans are concerned, Ferenc Gyurcsány and Péter Márki-Zay live in symbiosis, since, based on what has been said so far, Péter Márki-Zay is also clearly against the minimum wage.
he pointed out.
One hundred and four hundred and fifty thousand people will receive PIT refunds in February based on the declarations they have just received
he said to another question. The others at the time of the next tax return.

The government’s intentions have not changed, so the airport must be state-owned and we want to achieve that, but we are definitely waiting for the election, Gulyás said on another question. The election campaign must be viewed with irony, as must the speeches of the candidate for prime minister on the left. the minister said on another question.
Gyurcsány and Márki-Zay represent the same policy
The statements of Péter Márki-Zay are the same as those of the left. This is a traditional left-wing position. Ferenc Gyurcsány and Péter Márki-Zay represent the same policy, so it is easy for the left to support Márki-Zay
– said the Minister, according to whom the joint prime ministerial candidate of the left-wing coalition is only more direct than other left-wing actors.
Asked about the fourth vaccination, Gergely Gulyás said: After consulting a doctor, anyone can request it, and the regulations on it will be published soon.
Responding to a question about the waiting lists for infertility centers, Gergely Gulyás said: Everyone is entitled to infertility treatment free of charge, it is an immediate expectation that everyone will receive an appointment within a short time. Funding and technical facilities are available, and in October there was only one center where we had to wait a long time – stressed the Minister, who believes that this situation has changed since then, the new system came into force and a separate directorate was appointed in January to deal with the situation.
The left wanted to privatize health care during its rule
In connection with the privatization of healthcare, Gergely Gulyás pointed out:
The left wanted to privatize health care during its reign, and now Péter Márki-Zay also supports this in his statements. The privatization of healthcare is in the interests of many, with more than ten million customers
Asked whether the capital would receive funds from the government for the Healthy Budapest Program in 2022, the minister stated that the recovery fund would have 280 billion available for health improvements, of which 10 billion could be disbursed to the capital, and the government will to act.
The left pretended not to have heard Mark-Zay’s words, measured by double standards, but the united opposition candidate makes sure to make questionable statements over and over again.
He also highlighted the issue of border fencing: The left is clear about breaking down the border fence. The same goes for the abolition of the minibal wage, he noted.

Responding to a question, the minister also said that the government continues to contribute to the financing of BKV, but the mayor has been no longer constructive since the beginning, as his attention has turned to national politics and the capital and the country are seeing a detriment.
