The number of confirmed coronavirus patients diagnosed in Hungary has risen to 167 and another elderly man has died.

More Hungarian nationals have been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19); as a result, the number of confirmed patients diagnosed in Hungary has risen to 167 and another elderly man with chronic illness has died.

Hungary has reached the second stage of the epidemic, the stage of cluster infections, when infection spreads in public via face-to-face interactions. The virus can be present anywhere.

In order to slow down mass infection, it is very important that the elderly and students, as well as anyone who is able to do so, stay at home; and everyone is asked to observe all rules and recommendations laid out by the government.

The number of novel coronavirus patients diagnosed in Hungary has now reached 167, including 10 Iranian, 2 British, 1 Kazakh, 1 Vietnamese, and 153 Hungarian.

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