Coronavirus: 82 Fatalities, 1,416 New Infections Registered in Hungary

Hungary Today 2021.05.13.

Fully 82 coronavirus patients died over the past 24 hours, while 1,416 new infections were registered in Hungary, koronavirus.gov.hu said on Thursday.

The number of active infections has decreased to 165,769. The number of people in need of hospital care has also decreased: hospitals are now caring for 2,782 Covid patients, 354 of whom are on ventilators.

Since the first outbreak, 795,200 infections have been registered, while fatalities have risen to 28,970. Fully 600,461 people have made a recovery.

There are 18,886 people in official quarantine, while 5,588,435 tests have been officially carried out.

So far 4,420,767 people have received a first jab, while 2,584,879 have been fully vaccinated.

(However, there seems to be a problem with the official data regarding the number of people who have been fully vaccinated as today’s number is lower than the one published on Wednesday.)

Update: As it turns out, authorities on Wednesday made a mistake when publishing the number of fully inoculated people, initially reporting 2,599,041 vaccinations instead of 2,559,041. That’s why, at first, there seemed to be fewer fully vaccinated people today than yesterday.

On March 5th, the government announced further strict measures, but the reopening has started, since the number of people inoculated with the first jab has reached 2.5 million.

On April 30th, Hungary reached another milestone as the number of vaccinated people surpassed 4 million.  Therefore, new rules further easing restrictions have come into force.
