During today's Operational Group press conference, Chief Medical Officer Cecília Müller reported a steady increase in the number of people recovered. She said that more tests are being carried out and nearly 100,000 samples have so far been taken.

For the fourth day in a row, the number of newly confirmed infections is declining, she said. The effects must be monitored for at least two weeks in rural areas where the defense system changed on May 4.

Müller also talked about a collaboration signed between the National Center for Public Health and the University of Debrecen. Its aim is to set up a national Vaccine Factory that will be the cornerstone of a continuous and independent supply of vaccines including compulsory and voluntary vaccinations. She also spoke about the fact that pharmacies are now allowed to sell FFP 1, 2 and 3 masks.
