Hungary is now in the phase 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 citizens of Budapest are especially asked to abide by the restrictions, as the capital has the highest number of infected.

As the data on the deceased has shown, the coronavirus is the most dangerous for the elderly. Elderly citizens are therefore especially asked to stay at home and request help from their relatives or the municipality with shopping. 

The number of confirmed people infected with the coronavirus in Hungary now stands at 1,410. In compulsory home quarantine: 15,333. Recovered: 118. Deceased: 99.

Only together can we slow down the epidemic and flatten the curve.
