KSH: ALMOST ONE-FIFTH OF HUNGARIANS ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE TO COVID-19

 

Close to one-fifth of Hungarians are especially vulnerable to infection by Covid-19, a dossier of data related to the pandemic compiled by the Central Statistical Office (KSH) shows. The data show 19.3% of Hungary’s residents are 65 or older, a high-risk group for Covid-19. The number of 65-and-overs stands at 1.9 million. About three-tenths of them live alone, although that ratio is significantly higher in the Great Plains region, in Southern Transdanubia and in the capital.
