The number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Hungary reached 50 on Tuesday, the koronavirus.gov.hu website said. Of the confirmed cases, 39 are Hungarian, 9 are Iranian, one is British and one Kazakh, the official website for disseminating information on the new coronavirus said. Late on Monday, the website reported that a second patient treated with Covid-19 has recovered. The Iranian citizen in question has been discharged from hospital, it said. One patient has died and two have recovered so far. A total of 1,436 tests have been conducted in Hungary, while 159 people are currently being held under observation in isolation, the website said. A search for possible contacts of the new patients is under way. At a Monday press conference, chief medical officer Cecília Müller said the epidemic has entered a new phase, appearing in clusters rather than in individual cases or small communities.
