The number of confirmed people infected with the coronavirus in Hungary now stands at 41,732. In compulsory home quarantine: 24,710. Recovered: 12,628. Deceased: 1,052.

The total number of active COVID-19 cases is 28,052. The results show that 33 percent of those infected, 43 percent of the deceased, and 31 percent of those recovered live in Budapest. There are currently 1,555 patients hospitalized with the coronavirus, 167 of whom are on ventilators.

Here are the latest travel restrictions applied in Hungary:

* Starting September 1, foreigners (except foreign nationals with Hungarian residency, who are treated as Hungarian citizens) are only allowed to enter Hungary if it’s absolutely necessary.

* Based on bilateral agreements, V4 citizens who previously booked trips to Hungary may enter the country with one negative coronavirus test.

* Hungarians returning from abroad must undergo a medical examination upon arrival and either go into self-quarantine for 14 days or present two negative SARS-CoV-2 PCR tests.

* Transit through Hungary is possible, provided travelers do not leave the designated transit corridor and leave Hungary within 24 hours of entry.

Remember, it’s still vital for everyone to maintain a distance of 1.5 meters and cover their face in shops and on public transport within Hungary.
