Hungary will take over treatment of 50 COVID intensive care patients from Romania, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó said on Wednesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The patients will be treated at hospitals in Szeged and Debrecen, Szijjártó said.

The decision was taken after talks with Romanian Deputy Prime Minister Hunor Kelemen and Minister of Health Attila Cseke on how Hungary can support Romania in an "extraordinarily difficult situation" with regard to the pandemic, he added.

He noted that Hungary delivered ventilators and favipiravir, a drug used to treat COVID patients, to Romania in the previous week.
