MÜLLER: MANDATORY INSPECTION ORDERED IN SENIORS' HOMES

 

Mandatory inspections will be introduced in homes for the elderly because health services in some of them have been reported inadequate, the chief medical officer told an online news conference. Cecília Müller said that four seniors had recently died of Covid-19 in a home in an eastern Budapest suburb, adding that half of the inhabitants had already been screened for coronavirus and everybody would be examined. Müller added that even people with mild symptoms had to be continually monitored. Müller noted that the authorities had in time banned seniors’ homes from accepting new inhabitants, banned visits to such institutions and imposed a curfew on such institutions. She added that all those prohibitions would stay in effect at Easter, too.
