Hungarian Suspected Of Contracting Coronavirus Quarantined
Another Hungarian national suspected of carrying the coronavirus has been quarantined, a government official said.

The truck driver recently returned from Italy’s Lombardy region, foreign affairs state secretary Tamás Menczer said, adding that though the individual in question does not have a fever, they have reported feeling unwell.

The truck driver is already being transported to hospital, he said.

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.

A consul from Madrid is set to travel to the island and if necessary, Hungary will send more officials to Tenerife, he said.

The hotel with around 1,000 guests and staff members had to be quarantined after an Italian guest was diagnosed with coronavirus.
