However, there are territorial differences, with the rate remaining the highest in Budapest (97.6 infections per 100,000 individuals), followed by Fejér County (86.4), and Zala County (86), she added.

Müller said that, so far, 110 people in 33 elderly care homes have died from the coronavirus. In total, 846 residents and 139 workers have been infected in such institutions. At the same time, 298 patients have already recovered.
