A Hungarian national suspected of carrying the coronavirus has been quarantined.

Foreign affairs state secretary Tamás Menczer said the truck driver recently returned from Italy’s Lombardy region, and although the individual does not have a fever, they have reported feeling unwell. He has been transported to hospital and quarantined.

Meanwhile, citing Hungary’s honorary consul in Tenerife, Menczer said there were Hungarian citizens staying at a hotel on the island that was recently locked down after a coronavirus case was identified there.

The state secretary said the consul from Madrid is set to travel to the island and if necessary, Hungary will send more officials to Tenerife. The hotel with around 1,000 guests and staff members had to be quarantined after an Italian guest was diagnosed with coronavirus.
