“By flattening the epidemic curve, we may be able to avoid the worst,” Cecilia Müller said today.

Chief Medical Officer Cecilia Müller pointed out today that “the Hungarian representative of the World Health Organization considers the Hungarian testing protocol appropriate, and testing based on the virus's hereditary is reliable,” she said.

“By flattening the epidemic curve, we may be able to avoid the worst,” Müller said. “The WHO representative also stated that the best preparation is to prepare for the worst,” she added.

Meanwhile, Róbert Kiss, Lieutenant Colonel of the Hungarian Police force, announced that a new control system has been introduced for Ukrainian, Romanian and Serbian passengers at the borders.

“They can enter Hungary at a specific time, which is a four-hour time slot a day; there is a set time for both entry and exit,” he said, adding that “their vehicles will receive a yellow sticker and may only stop at the designated rest areas. There is a medical examination at entry, and they must prove that they can enter the country of destination.”
