Hungarians evacuated from Wuhan, the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak, earlier this month were discharged from a Budapest hospital quarantine on Sunday, the head of the National Institute of Hematology and Infectology at South Pest Central Hospital told MTI.
The six men and one woman were symptom-free for the entire duration of their quarantine and all of their tests came back negative for the coronavirus, János Szlávik said.
He noted that the reason for their 14-day quarantine was that this is the longest-known incubation period for the virus.
