The chief medical officer thanked the dedicated work of nurses in Hungary on Tuesday, International Nurses Day. “I would like to express thanks to them for their work, as a result of which 12 coronavirus patients could be disconnected from ventilators in St László Hospital and they are in stable condition,” Cecília Müller told a regular daily online press conference.
Citing the latest data, she said that they showed a continued low number of new Covid-19 infections. Müller said that inspections in one-third, or 345, of Hungary’s social and elderly care homes had been completed and revealed the absence of a full-time doctor only in two cases. They found the operation of 273 homes in order, she said. Answering a question, Müller said that a sufficient number of recovered coronavirus patients have volunteered to offer their blood plasma for anti-viral therapies.
