Viktor Orban's authority in Hungary; uptake of contact-tracing apps
Carl Bildt, former Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Sweden, with the view from Europe:
Will Hungary's move to end "rule by decree" minimize Viktor Orban's authority?
Well, the answer to that one is no. They have evidently felt the need for some facelift on the nature of what is going on in Hungary. They've done that. But it doesn't change anything of the substance. He's ruling in an increasingly authoritarian manner in his country.
How is the use of Covid-19 contact tracing apps being received by Europeans?
Very different in different countries. It requires a very substantial uptake of users in order to have any effect. We haven't really seen that in any European country. There have been some problems with privacy and other issues. Notably in Norway, where they had to go back on it. So, the answer to that question, the jury very much out.
