Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and Interior Minister Sándor Pintér visited the St. László Hospital in Budapest to obtain information about preparations for receiving coronavirus patients there.

In a video posted on Facebook, Orbán talked to the head physician in charge, who said the number of out-patients was “manageable” but there were a lot of people coming in to be tested for coronavirus.

Orbán inspected the hospital tents set up in the courtyard.

Another physician told him that the hospital hoped to increase the number of beds available for Covid-19 patients to 180 from 140.
