All members of the European Union update the territorial numbers of infected except for Hungary. Even Albanian authorities tell which city or county the infected people live in while Hungary says nothing.

On the Monday press conference of the Operative Board Cecília Müller said that they do so because they respect the personal rights of the patients and that is why they do not tell where they live. She emphasised that

if they did so those infected could be tracked down reported. Meanwhile, the Austrian ministry for health regularly publishes the newest data in the issue. At the time checked the altogether number of those infected was 959. 150 of them lives in Lower Austria, 122 in Vienna, 111 in Styria, 254 in Tirol, 196 in Upper Austria, 54 in Salzburg, 10 in Burgenland (the region near the Hungarian border), 55 in Voralberg and 7 in Kärnten.

The same happens in the case of Croatia: the number of the patients there is 57, and 25 of them live in Zagreb while near the Hungarian border, in Eszék-Baranya county, 8 infections were confirmed.

Until Sunday, the Romanian government told not only the county where the patients lived in but also whether they are male or female and added even their age.

From Monday on, they only tell how many patients live in the different counties of Romania. Anyway, the altogether number of infections there was 123, and the government publishes the latest news in the issue in two newsletters per day. Interestingly, the 69th patient’s daughter is the 70th patient, while the 65th one’s wife is the 68th. Romanian authorities told until Sunday whether the patient was abroad in the last few weeks and they even added the country where they were, too. 

The Belgian government updates a regional map containing the infections each day. The Polish government does the same. On their website, we can check each region. The Finnish government publishes the number of patients being treated in the big hospitals, and they do that in English and Swedish, as well.

The Albanian government gives information related to the epidemic on Facebook.
