The spread of COVID-19 in Hungary

As of January 2020, a Hungarian operational staff was formed to work out a plan to prepare for the potential spread of the virus in the country. Authorities announced the first two confirmed cases of COVID-19 on March 4, 2020, and the first coronavirus related death on March 15, 2020. By the end of the month, the virus was present in all counties of Hungary.

The government’s response

On March 11, a state of emergency was declared in the country and the first security measures were introduced. Firstly, sporting events, indoor gatherings with more than 100 people, and foreign exchange programs were canceled, later universities, elementary and high schools were closed, cafes and restaurants were restricted from operating beyond 3 pm, and all further events got canceled. On March 30, the coronavirus-law was passed, which enabled Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to rule by decree indefinitely. Members of the European Parliament expressed their concern about the act approved by the Hungarian National Assembly being incompatible with the laws and principles of the European Union.
