Hungarians returning home from Wuhan in China are quarantined for two weeks

Although the returnees feel well they will remain quarantined for their own safety and to protect other members of the public from potential coronavirus infection.

The chief medical officer has quarantined seven Hungarians returning home from Wuhan in China for two weeks.

According to MTI, although the returnees feel well they will remain quarantined for their own safety and to protect other members of the public from potential coronavirus infection.

Cecília Müller said no one in Hungary is carrying coronavirus, but the seven people quarantined will undergo several tests to be sure.

An “operative board” has been set up to coordinate the actions of state authorities that would be involved in preventing the spread of the virus and an epidemic that could follow. Exchanges of information between these authorities are ongoing and regular meetings have been held to discuss completed and future tasks.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán sent a letter to French President Emmanuel Macron thanking him for France’s help with the return of the group of Hungarians from Wuhan.

“Let me thank you for the excellent cooperation which was indispensable for the completion of the complex operation under extraordinary circumstances,” PM Orbán wrote in his letter.
