The new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms for most people, but for some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness or death.

Hungary’s prime minister says that restrictions will be enforced for two weeks on people leaving their homes.

Prime Minister Viktor Orban said Friday on state radio that from Saturday, only going to work, essential trips like to buy food or medicines or taking children to daycare will be allowed until April 11.

Shopping in food stores and pharmacies will be restricted to those over the age of 65 from 9 a.m. until noon.

People will also be allowed outside for exercising while keeping distance from each other and for some other necessary activities like attending physical therapy sessions.

Hungary has 300 cases of the coronavirus, and 10 infected people have died.
