Hungary Says the Number of Coronavirus Patients Needing Hospital Treatment Jumped by 166 Overnight to 1,418

BUDAPEST, Hungary — Health authorities in Hungary say the number of coronavirus patients needing hospital treatment jumped by 166 overnight to 1,418, the highest number since the outbreak of the pandemic.

The country of 10 million has so far recorded 38,837 cases of coronavirus infections, including 968 deaths.

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán warned last week that the pandemic is set to gain momentum over the coming months and that a vaccine would not be available until the summer of 2021 at the earliest.

Apart from making the wearing of masks compulsory on public transportation and in shops, the government has so far refrained from reintroducing restrictive measures similar to those implemented in the spring.
