2020.03.27. 19:00 - Recommendations under the emergency
The measures and recommendations under the emergency related to the COVID-19 epidemic are taken in order to minimize and control the spread of the disease. We are regretfully informed about multiple cases of student gatherings disregarding advice on social distancing, hence risking further transmission of the infection.
The government of Hungary introduced curfew starting from the 28th of March until the 11th of April. Accordingly citizens are not allowed to leave their residences, except in specially justified cases, such as going to work or in order to meet basic needs via visiting grocery stores, pharmacies, markets, etc. Keeping one and a half meters of distance is obligatory. Elderly people are allowed to visit stores, pharmacies and markets only between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. During this period no one under 65 years of age are allowed to do so.
We as young intellectuals have to grow up to the responsibility, of which measures to fight the spread of the disease weigh on us. Based on our present knowledge, COVID-19 cause milder symptoms – not always though - at a young age, but we cannot risk the health of those living in our environment, so we ask all of you, to treat the situation with due seriousness and do everything in your disposal to soften and possibly prevent the effects of the epidemic.

2020.03.17. 10:30 - Coronavirus info
It became clear today that the novel coronavirus epidemic is entering the group infection phase, meaning that the new source of infection concerning the newly identified cases cannot be determined with certainty. Younger people often produce mild symptoms or can even be symptom-free carriers of the virus, therefore – considering the peculiar virulence of the disease – may pose significant threat to the elders of our community. Consequently, it is our responsibility to protect our loved ones and pay special attention to our environment!
Concerning the situation above, we collected the procedures and recommendations of Hungarian authorities, that are easily adaptable and considerably lowers the risk of spreading the infection.
