According to the Perspective Institute, Hungarians do not want to open for the time being

According to their polls, the majority are those who are happy with the regulation of the government’s current epidemic treatments, and there are a minority of positions that would already open up or further tighten lives.

A To the Hungarian Nation conducted a representative poll by the Perspective Institute, based on which they found that since November, the proportion of those who consider the government’s epidemiological measures to be sufficiently stringent has been steadily above 50 percent.

Opening parties are in a significant minority (22 per cent) as opposed to the current restrictions (59 per cent) and 11 per cent would like further tightening. According to the Perspective Institute, the proportion of people satisfied with the current restrictions is expected to increase further as the number of vaccinations increases and the time comes. While last autumn the proportion of those who would have tightened further restrictive measures sometimes exceeded 40 percent, this has so far subsided to the point that only every 10 Hungarians could imagine stricter measures.

According to a study by the Perspective Institute, opposition voters are divided over anti-virus measures: 39 percent of those dissatisfied with Viktor Orbán’s work would be pro-opening and 18 percent would like more tightening. Mostly young people are open-minded, but they are also in the minority among 18-29 year olds (41 per cent), the majority would be happy or would like further tightening. In Budapest, the proportion of those who are satisfied with the current regulations is 56 percent. 18 per cent would consider further opening, 15 per cent further tightening important in the capital.

According to an earlier announcement by the government, a partial opening is planned for 1 March and 1 April, but a national consultation on this will be launched in mid-February.
