The country has ordered enough supplies from China's Sinopharm to inoculate 2.5 million people, according to the report published Saturday.

The move came after Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban criticised the EU's rollout for "progressing slowly."

Government leaders in the Czech Republic said they may follow Hungary's lead by also using vaccines yet to be approved by Brussels.
