Even more Hungarian citizens have been diagnosed with COVID-19, bringing the confirmed number of cases in Hungary to 2,942. Meanwhile, 625 have so far recovered from the disease.

Hungary is now in the period of cluster infections, when the virus spreads via social interaction. The disease can therefore be present anywhere. It’s vital for everyone to stay home and observe the recommendations and movement restrictions, especially elderly people, students and those who have returned from abroad.

The number of confirmed people infected with the coronavirus in Hungary now stands at 2,942. In compulsory home quarantine: 10,754. Recovered: 625. Deceased: 335.

During yesterday’s Operational Group press conference, Róbert Kiss, Lieutenant Colonel of the Hungarian police force, announced that the second phase of the coronavirus defense will start on Monday, and the related government decrees have already been published.

“In the countryside, shops and outdoor baths can open, and the terraces of restaurants and cafes can also open, but only employees can stay in the buildings,” he said. “Between May 1-3, local governments may set stricter rules by decree; police have initiated preparations for the new measures and will be monitoring compliance with the new rules,” he added.
