More Hungarian citizens have been diagnosed with COVID-19, bringing the confirmed number of cases in Hungary to 1,310.

More Hungarian citizens have been diagnosed with COVID-19, bringing the confirmed number of cases in Hungary to 1,310. Meanwhile, 115 have so far recovered from the disease.

Chief Medical Officer Cecília Müller highlighted yesterday that the number of confirmed infections has increased more in the last 24 hours than in the days before.

“The situation justifies not relaxing the rules,” Müller said. “The number of deaths is rising, they are typically elderly people. We can say for sure that the virus is especially dangerous for the elderly,” she added.

Hungary is now in the period of cluster infections, when the virus spreads via social interaction. The disease can therefore be present anywhere. It’s vital for everyone to stay home and observe the recommendations and movement restrictions, especially elderly people, students and those who have returned from abroad.

The number of confirmed people infected with the coronavirus in Hungary now stands at 1,310. In compulsory home quarantine: 17,490. Recovered: 115. Deceased: 85.

Only together can we slow down the epidemic and flatten the curve.
