Hungarian authorities have confirmed the country’s fourth case of the new coronavirus, after the Iranian girlfriend of one of the Iranian students diagnosed with Covid-19 earlier this week also tested positive for the new virus.
Both students are now being treated at Budapest’s St. László Hospital, the government website providing updates about the coronavirus outbreak said late on Thursday.
After the patient’s test came back positive, the authorities immediately began looking into whom she had come into contact with, the website said.
The authorities will provide more information on her condition and the next steps concerning her diagnosis at a later time, it added.
The website also noted that there were now 40 people quarantined at the South Pest Central Hospital.
Earlier on Thursday, a Hungarian man who recently returned from Milan also tested positive for the new virus.
