Chief Medical Officer Cecília Müller said yesterday that the number of people infected with the novel coronavirus is rising in Hungary, but the curve of the epidemic can be kept flat thanks to the effective controls.

Müller said recommendations of the World Health Organization on repeat tests are being followed, adding that most people are tested twice but those working in “critical infrastructure” such as healthcare are tested more often.

The Chief Medical Officer said outpatients are released only after two negative test results and if there are no longer any symptoms of the virus. She added that the reproduction rate of the virus in Hungary was below 1.0 thanks to the measures introduced.
