János Szlávik, the head of the National Institute of Hematology and Infectology at South Pest Central Hospital, told a press conference that the two Iranian students who have tested positive for the new coronavirus were in good health and had no fever. “Physically, they’re completely fine,” Szlávik said. He added that two people living with the students had also been placed in isolation at the hospital for observation. He said the authorities were investigating how the patients had contracted the virus and what places they had visited in Hungary. The patients will remain in isolation until they make a full recovery, he added. In response to a question, Szlávik said both of the students had recently visited Iran to celebrate the Iranian New Year with their families. One of them had specifically asked to be tested, while the other was tested after showing light symptoms, he added.
