At its meeting today, the Operational Corps responsible for the containment of the coronavirus infection decided that any patient care capacity available at the Szent László Hospital of the South Pest Central Hospital – National Institute for Haematology and Disease Control must be vacated with immediate effect, and patients currently in the hospital must be relocated to other health care providers.

The purpose of this measure is to make sure that the necessary capacity is continuously available in the Szent László Hospital, the institution which has been designated for the observation and treatment of persons suspected of having contracted the coronavirus infection and confirmed patients.
