Coronavirus: Active Cases Stand At 478 With No New Deaths In Hungary
The number of confirmed people infected with the coronavirus in Hungary now stands at 4,293. The number of deaths stands at 595, while the number of those recovered now stands at 3,220.

478 is the number of active infected, 83 patients are hospitalized, 4 of them are on ventilators.

The government is introducing international travel restrictions with the aim of preventing a new wave of the coronavirus epidemic, the Prime Minister's chief of staff said.

Gergely Gulyás told a press conference that Hungary must prevent the virus from being imported from abroad. The government does not currently plan to introduce any additional restrictive rules within the country but it will tighten border controls from Wednesday, he said.

“Hungary is today among the safest countries in Europe,” he said. But given new outbreaks around the world, the government is putting the health and safety of Hungarians foremost and is doing everything possible to prevent the virus’s return, he said.

The operative board in charge of containing the epidemic has advised the government to classify countries into “red”, “yellow” and “green”, based on the severity of the situation in each, Gulyás said, adding that it is continually monitoring infection data from abroad.

Entry from “yellow” or “red” countries will entail undergoing a health check at the border and 14 days in quarantine unless two consecutive negative coronavirus tests taken 48 hours apart within the previous 5 days can be proven.

Hungarian citizens can freely enter from a country classified “green”.
