This large-scale test was carried out using rapid antigen detection reagents and adopted the principle of voluntary participation. The Hungarian government will set up 16,691 testing points across the country. Within a week, 370,000 people are expected to participate in testing. The government’s move aims to obtain a more accurate and comprehensive understanding of the overall situation of the epidemic through large-scale testing, and at the same time, through screening of social welfare, medical and educational institutions, and timely appropriate anti-epidemic measures to slow the spread of the virus.
