Hungary to reschedule some operations to help hospitals as pandemic spreads, PM Orban says

BUDAPEST, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Hungary will try to avoid closing schools as long as possible but some medical operations will have to be rescheduled as hospital beds are filling up with coronavirus patients, Prime Minister Viktor Orban told state radio on Friday.

Orban said that based on current predictions, Hungary will need 2,240 intensive beds with ventilators for patients by Nov. 21, and 4,480 beds by Dec. 10, which he said would be around the limit of current hospital capacities.
