Chief Medical Officer Cecília Müller said yesterday that Hungary is entering the second phase of the epidemic, meaning that after individual cases, the virus has begun to spread in communities, and it is no longer possible to tell who infects who.

At the time of writing, there are 137 people in quarantine. The number of recoveries stands at two, while that of fatalities remains one.
