First of all: we would like to inform you, our hosts, about our support and compassion. Slowly, the pandemic lasted for a year, for the most part of that one year, unfortunately, we had to live closed or restricted. We, and millions of Hungarians, tried to choose domestic products and services even in the crisis: to help you and you. It hasn't been much easier for us either, but we are proud of the excellent Hungarian tourism and hospitality sector, so we are trying to help you.
Unfortunately, however, we have to respond to the riots that have become more and more loud in recent weeks, especially after Father Tibi sends the thoughts of inciting the rebellion to his readership of more than one million two hundred thousand. Although we stand by you, we believe that you should also stand by us by taking care of us. That's what we did. By wanting a demonstration of hundreds of thousands and opening a bazaar on the boulevard, you are endangering us, the guests. In the long run, this is a very bad strategy! The vast majority of people understand and support the existing restrictions, and restaurants rebelling in this situation should also consider the possibility of a possible reduction in the number of guests in the future. What is needed now is unity and not division, unity and division remain even after opening, in the long run it is not worth going against the majority and standing by any political side as an entrepreneur, because it can easily halve the circle of guests. If we stick together, after opening we will order two servings of everything, if not, then we, the guests, can rebel, organize, boycott, draw maps, list, etc. Would that be the goal? Not ours.
Let’s start there by living in times when it is not governments that initiate situations, but a force above them: the coronavirus. Governments then, with more or less success, respond to the viral situation. It is nonsense and a lie to name the government as the cause of the crisis, and we and our more than 56,000 followers know very well how much energy and money the current Hungarian government has invested in economic growth and helping businesses in the last decade. From tax cuts to tenders, it’s also hard to list how many opportunities you’ve given the hospitality industry over the past 10 years. It is no wonder that Hungary has become a significant center of European tourism in recent years. So let’s face it: it’s not the government that’s to blame for this crisis. Again: it is not the government that is at fault.
In particular, we do not understand why you are attacking this government, which is trying to get the solution, the vaccine, perhaps the most militant in the EU, paying attention to our security and to being able to start life again as soon as possible. Let's take a look at what regulations are like elsewhere in Europe:
📌Portugal has a full closure and a national curfew. In the third wave, the number of cases and deaths is the worst in the world, ambulances are unable to get into hospitals.
📌In France, it is being decided these days whether there should be a complete closure, a curfew. There is currently a curfew between 6pm and 6am and all business premises are closed.
📌In Germany, although it is possible to take it home, only the necessary shops can be opened.
📌In England, you can only leave your home if you go to work or for food or medicine. Also, only the most necessary stores can be opened.
In Hungary, the rules are less strict than in Europe, but the rules are consistent. Due to this, the second wave of the virus shows branching trends and the third wave does not explode. Nevertheless, 100 people die every day, and more than a thousand become infected. If we opened it, we would have to close it completely 2 weeks later. And the government's first task is to protect the lives of its citizens, so it must prevent violations (whether it is a violation of the curfew, failure to wear a mask, or even irregular opening hours).
We call on the hosts who work fairly and honestly, but who are now in trouble, to persevere: we get closer to unlocking the closures with each day spent in discipline. Don’t open it, because if you open it now, all our achievements so far may be lost in a few weeks. You will receive a 6-month closure, your guests will receive a fine of 150 thousand to 1 million forints, you can only be the losers. Or not - there will be one winner, the left. They are behind the herding, they organize pseudo-civic, camouflage groups and movements. They need social contradictions because they have a sacred belief that they can only replace the government if people fall on each other and the epidemic causes severe economic damage and unemployment. Planned left-liberal damage is taking place, no more, no less. In the summer, they lied about Lake Balaton that 5,000 HUF was a flame, while they spread the false news about subsidies for tourism and the hospitality industry (Ráhel, Tiborcz, Lőrinc, etc.), and now they want to hurt you because of the epidemic.
We ask the left not to harass people, not to hinder the defense, not to use the epidemic to create mood. Sooner or later there will be enough vaccine, life will return to its old wheel, our economy will soar, but everyone will have to answer for the deeds done during the epidemic, including you, in the spring of 2022 at the latest!
⚠️The letter is also addressed to a party called Our Country: 2022 is close! Let's not forget that you also got dirty on the fan.
And last but not least: we ask our followers to help take away restaurants, small shops open and order your home, buy your home!
We need to be patient and stick together - but not against each other, but against the virus. Let's take care of each other!
If each household orders only 1 serving of food for an average of HUF 1,500, then HUF 6 billion goes immediately to the caterers (counting 4 million households)
Father Tibi would rather promote this!

PS: Why don’t the restaurants open❓
⚠️It must be opened !! - this has been demanded for some time by politicians who are also trained in epidemic management and by the press.
⚠️However, the government has decided to close for sure until March!
📍It's worth looking around abroad again! The strange situation arose that the opening parties could find “friends” in Moscow, for example, and the government could rely on the measures of Western and Central European countries.
✅Some places where restaurants are welcomed are:
🇷🇺In the Russian capital, restaurants and entertainment venues have had to close at 11 p.m. so far, but - just yesterday - the restriction on night operations has also been lifted.
🇺🇦In Ukraine, restaurants can be open undisturbed during the day and cooked away at night.
🇲🇰Restaurants are also operating in northern Macedonia, with the mandatory closing postponed to 9pm instead of 6pm a week.
🇪🇸In Spain, restaurants are / were open with a limited number of people, but due to the outbreak of the third wave, more and more settlements are being re-ordered.
🇸🇪In Sweden, there are still milder restrictions: restaurants are not allowed to sell alcohol after eight in the evening, and a maximum of four guests can sit at a table.
❌However, in most European countries, it is not possible to go to a restaurant for weeks or even months:
🇦🇹In Austria, hotels, restaurants and bars can open in March at the earliest.
🇫🇷They wanted to open restaurants in France on January 20, but that is out of the question due to the spread of the British virus mutant.
🇩🇪Restrictions have been in place in Germany since November, they are not over yet ... Instead of opening, more travel restrictions may come.
🇭🇷In Croatia, the epidemic is flattening, but cafes and restaurants are not yet open.
🇩🇰Denmark is also strict: bars, cafes and restaurants can only take orders to take away.
🇳🇱In the Netherlands, schools, non-food stores and catering establishments will certainly remain closed until 9 February.
🇧🇬In Bulgaria, restaurants, cafes and bars are expected to remain closed for weeks.
🇵🇱A slow easing has begun in Poland, but shops, hotels and restaurants are still closed.
📍The line could still be continued. Europe is still very far from the end of the epidemic. The WHO warned just today that it would be dangerous to lift restrictions too soon❗️
