    Hungary has the highest number of people vaccinated in Europe and one of the highest COVID-related death rates worldwide, relative to its population. Healthcare workers say restrictions should’ve been in place sooner and should stay in place longer.

    Access to Hungarian hospitals for independent media to verify what’s going on is almost impossible. DW met one doctor who dared to speak on camera about the situation inside. Our correspondent Fanny Facsar reports.
