Newly diagnosed coronavirus patients in a serious condition will be transferred to two specialized hospitals in Budapest, in a return to the procedure applied at the beginning of the epidemic.

According to the government’s official koronavirus.gov.hu website, Chief Medical Officer Cecília Müller has instructed the country’s hospitals and the National Ambulance Service accordingly.

In view of the slowly declining number of registered patients and of those in need of hospital treatment, new COVID-19 patients in a serious condition will be transferred to the St. László and Korányi hospitals in Budapest.

Müller said in a statement that the restrictions implemented in Hungary have kept the infection rate low. Concentrating the treatment of coronavirus patients in two hospitals enables other hospitals to resume normal operations, she said. Currently, 35 hospitals are treating COVID-19 patients.

A call center set up for advice on the coronavirus can be reached on +36-80-277-455 and +36-80-277-456 or by email koronavirus@bm.gov.hu
