Coronavirus: Symptoms and Travel History Together Constitute Suspicion, says Chief Medical Officer

MTI-Hungary Today 2020.02.28.

Only patients with both the typical symptoms of a coronavirus infection and a travel history to countries affected by the disease will be considered as suspicious of having contracted COVID-19, the chief medical officer said on Friday.

The symptoms of a COVID-19 infection include fever and a dry cough, Cecília Müller said.

Hungary has had no confirmed coronavirus cases as yet, she said. Hungarian authorities are in close contact with the World Health Organisation and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control and protocols are applied as needed, she added.
