Masses of cancer patients may have died due to the government’s mismanaged Covid epidemic

During the five quarters of the epidemic, in total and on average ten to twenty percent fewer cancer patients were found than before. Fewer patients were recognized, mainly among the elderly.

Masses of cancer patients may have died due to the government's mismanaged Covid epidemic


A recent study strongly casts a shadow over earlier confident ministerial statements about the excellent care of cancer patients during the epidemic, reports Népszava.

In October of last year, in the video report entitled “Eletközelben”, the former head of the Humanities Ministry, Miklós Kásler, claimed:

“not a single patient was left unattended during the epidemic.”

On the other hand, the latest data published the other day prove it: the care of cancer patients dropped by 10-20 percent at the beginning of the epidemic, and since then it has not been possible to return to the pre-epidemic period.
