This is what Atlatszo reported last week

„There is a department called Lombardy” – healthcare workers speak out about the pandemic

Some patients have to wait seven hours to get an ambulance, because there are too many calls. The ambulance stand in front of the hospitals as if it was New Year’s Eve in toxicology. One in eight patients is ventilated regardless of their age, and five to six die each day. Patients are struggling for air, while there are only two nurses for thirty patients. Atlatszo reporters interviewed healthcare professionals about the third wave of the pandemic, and how they turned from applauded heroes to mentally and physically exhausted robots.

Former minister, Fidesz MP buys more farmland near newly built hunting lodge – drone video

János Lázár, Fidesz MP and Government Commissioner is in the process of acquiring more land for HUF 57 million, next to the hunting lodge partly owned by himself. The politician has applied for a loan from Takarékbank Zrt. for a loan of HUF 45.8 million, which is 90 percent of the purchase price. The municipality of Hódmezővásárhely at the time when it was led by Lázár did business with the ill-reputed company owned by the seller’s children. According to Hungarian regulations all land sale plans must be made public before the contracts are concluded. 

According to a new study, geological research on Paks-II NPP site underestimates earthquake risk

A recently published geophysical study analyzing the geological exploration data of the Paks-II nuclear power plant site concludes that the geological and geophysical survey carried out recently for HUF 8 billion did not reveal all the details of the truth about an active tectonic fault line right under the planned nuclear reactors. Surface geophysical surveys within the site were either only able to identify the uppermost thin layer disturbed by human activity, or had nothing to do with the main question to be answered, or did not evaluate or interpret the alarming results obtained during the measurements. The author also undertook a missed evaluation of a series of measurements performed in the official study.
