Coronavirus – the second year

It has been more than a year since the Chinese authorities reported the emergence of a new, rapidly spreading virus to the WHO. Since then, there has hardly been a person in the world who has not heard the term Covid-19, and more and more people are mourning a relative or friend with whom the new disease ended while existences collapsed in weeks and our entire lives were rewritten by the epidemic. By now, the vaccines have been completed, which in turn raises not only hope, but again a lot of questions, while not only stopping the virus, but also threatening another mutation. You can find the details of this fight in our series of articles.

By Monday, another 2,623 people had been diagnosed with the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), increasing the number of confirmed infections by 405,646, according to official data. Last week, fewer new infections were reported on Tuesday: at that time, it was reported on koronavirus.gov.hu ​​that a sample of 1,548 people became positive the previous day.

The number of victims of the epidemic increased by 48. Mortality figures for Saturday and Sunday are significantly lower than those reported in recent weeks. The fact that the number of those who died in one day did not exceed fifty occurred before that on February 14 and before that on October 27 (!). At that time, 43 people had died as a result of coronavirus disease, complications of Covid-19.

The number of victims of the epidemic is currently officially 14,347.

In the last day 2029, a total of 308,650 people have been declared healed. The number of known active infections is 82,649, 546 higher than the previous day. This figure has been deteriorating day by day since February 15th.

256 coronavirus patients were hospitalized on Sunday, so 4,489 people are now being cared for in these conditions. Of these, 394 require mechanical ventilation, 28 more than at the time of the previous data release.

The vaccine has so far been given to 453,457 people – the previous day to 7,922 – of whom 201,005 had already received the second dose.

On Sunday, 15,925 coronavirus tests were performed – a total of 3,519,536 so far – of which 16.47 percent were positive. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a country tests enough if it has a real picture of the spread of the epidemic if the number of samples that prove positive remains below 5 percent.
