Coronavirus Update: Hungary is heading towards the stage of large-scale infections; now everyone has their own responsibilities

The number of confirmed coronavirus patients is now rising every day, and cases are also increasing in terms of percentage.

In this situation, where there is an epidemic extending throughout the entire country and the whole world, everyone has their own responsibilities – the elderly, the young, the authorities, and individuals.

Everyone must do what they can. There are no separate social groups; the rules prescribed that can slow down the epidemic and keep the number of incidences lower apply to us all. If we observe these rules, there is a chance that Hungary might survive this epidemic with a lower number of incidences, and as a result, the epidemic curve might then flatten out. Every measure that we adopted at an early stage and in proportion to what was required might then bring about the result that we are all striving for with our common efforts.

– Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Cecília Müller
