Coronavirus: Hungarian Hospitals Won't Cancel Urgent Procedures
Hungary’s hospitals are required to continue performing urgent procedures, the human resources ministry said.

Under a ministerial decree issued on March 16, hospitals must perform during the state of emergency any examination, treatment or operation without which a patient’s condition could turn critical or suffer lasting damage.

Urgent cases are handled accordingly all over the country, the ministry said in its statement.
