The total number of active COVID-19 cases is 1,311. The results show that 42 percent of those infected, 60 percent of the deceased, and 48 percent of those recovered live in Budapest. There are currently 404 patients hospitalized with the coronavirus, 24 of those are on ventilators.

It’s still vital for everyone to maintain a distance of 1.5 meters and cover their face in shops and on public transport. It is recommended to stay at home and observe the rules and recommendations, especially elderly people, students, and those who have returned from abroad.

Responding to the World Health Organization’s concerns regarding potential delays in infant vaccination due to the coronavirus pandemic, Cecilia Müller said yesterday that there is no such delay in Hungary and all children have been properly vaccinated. She added that there are several research groups in Hungary that are looking for preventive methods to counter the spread of the virus. One of these groups at the National Healthcare Center, led by Tamás Pándics, is working on a method to identify coronavirus spread in the environment.
