Coronavirus: Hungary Reports Fourth Death
The number of novel coronavirus related deaths has increased to four in Hungary, the government website koronavirus.gov.hu said on Friday evening.

The fourth patient, a 53-year-old man, was suffering from multiple chronic illnesses, the website said.

In the morning two elderly coronavirus patients, a Hungarian man aged 79 and one aged 68, died.

Meanwhile, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the country has risen to 85, the website said.

Ten of the patients are Iranian, one is British, another Kazakh, and 73 are Hungarian.

The epidemic in Hungary has entered its second phase, as the virus is being transmitted in communities rather than just from one individual to another, it added.

The authorities are calling on the elderly and young people in particular to stay at home.
