Coronavirus: Hungary Reports Fourth Death
The website warns that the country is now in the phase of group illnesses when the infection spreads through community, personal contact rather than just from one individual to another. The virus can be present anywhere in Hungary. They ask everyone – especially the elderly, students and those who came home from abroad – who can do so, to stay at home and follow the rules and recommendations, in order to slow down the mass infection.
