Coronavirus Update: Number of confirmed cases rises to 525

More detailed information will be provided from now on, which will include the age, gender and pre-existing conditions of the deceased.

More Hungarian citizens have been diagnosed with COVID-19, bringing the confirmed number of cases in Hungary to 525. The number of deaths has increased to 20.

Chief Medical Officer Cecília Müller said yesterday that a new system has been introduced on the official koronavirus.gov.hu website. “More detailed information will be provided from now on, which will include the age, gender and pre-existing illnesses of the deceased," she said.

The authorities are reminding people that Hungary is in the state of mass infections. This means that anyone could be carrying the virus, as the number of infected people is likely much higher than the number of confirmed cases.

In order to stop the spread of the coronavirus, it is vital that everyone stays at home, follows all recommendations and respects the restrictions on movement.

The number of confirmed people infected with the coronavirus in Hungary now stands at 525. In quarantine: 61. Recovered: 40. Deceased: 20.

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