Prayer #366: For the Record Levels of COVID-19 in Hungary
Hungary is presently experiencing record-high levels of COVID-19, with hospitalizations and deaths mounting. The eastern European country's surgeon general, Cecilia Muller, stated on Wednesday that hospitals in Hungary are now under enormous pressure. Hungary had a very small initial surge of the virus in the spring of 2020, and a much larger outbreak in the fall and early winter. This latter outbreak had begun to subside when this third wave, already bigger than the second one, struck in February. As of last week, more than 1,000 COVID patients in the country were on ventilators, straining the hospitals to capacity. Currently, just over 6% of Hungary's population has been fully vaccinated.
Pray for Hungary during this very discouraging and alarming resurgence of COVID-19. Pray for hospitals, doctors, nurses, and other medical staff as they labor to serve and care for the many serious COVID patients. Pray for increased vaccination, and that it would serve to quell this renewed outbreak of COVID-19.
Ps. 40:13: "Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me! O LORD, make haste to help me!"
