Hungary will make a third, booster shot against COVID-19 mandatory for all healthcare workers and will require mask wearing in most indoor places from Saturday, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban's chief of staff said on Thursday.

Gergely Gulyas also told a government briefing that only vaccines can provide protection against the coronavirus as case numbers are rising. Hungary reported 10,767 new COVID-19 infections on Thursday, its highest daily tally since the end of March.
