Minister Miklós Kásler shared much worse data before. He told Infórádió that, in the 4th wave, 9,485 people died out of 17 thousand patients receiving treatment in the Hungarian hospitals. That would mean 55 pc mortality, which is extremely high. It would mean that the Hungarian healthcare system is very ineffective.
Thus, portolio.hu asked for the data of the Semmelweis University. The institution said that they treated 6,456 people in in-patient and 8,173 people in outpatient care because of coronavirus between 2020 March and 2022 January. Based on their data, they lost 1,521 patients out of the 14,629.
That means a ten pc mortality rate at the university.
According to MTI, altogether 73 patients died of a Covid-related illness during the past 24 hours, while 8,921 new coronavirus infections were registered, koronavirus.gov.hu said on Friday. Fully 29 percent of new infections have been caused by the Omicron variant.
hospitals are treating 2,611 Covid-19 patients, 243 of whom are intubated on a ventilator.
