The medical staff takes care of a Covid-19 positive patient at the Uzsoki Hospital, Budapest, Hungary on May 16. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic spread to Hungary on 4 March 2020, when the first cases in the country were announced. The first coronavirus-related death was announced on 15 March on the government's official website. On 11 March, the Hungarian government declared a state of emergency. Within a few months only, the coronavirus named “SARS-COV-2” has pushed the whole World into such a crisis, that humanity hasn’t perhaps seen since World War II.
