The State Of Emergency.

Hungary’s state of emergency is expected to get parliamentary approval on Tuesday,

as Mr Orban’s supporters have a majority.

Since the second wave began this autumn Mr Orban had refrained from imposing a partial lockdown,

despite many of Hungary’s EU partners doing so.

France and Belgium have reimposed lockdowns similar to those clamped on Europe in March.
