Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has introduced a new nationwide lockdown for two weeks hoping to slow rates of infection.
In an interview with public broadcaster Kossuth Radio, Mr. Orban said that, from 28 March, residents would only be allowed to leave their homes for work or to run essential errands.
Between 9:00 and midday local time, grocery shops and pharmacies will also be required to close their doors to any shoppers aged under 65.
Mr. Orban said people would still be allowed to go outside, so long as they avoided traveling in groups.
From Monday, every hospital in the country will be designated a "commander", who will be responsible for ensuring it adheres to epidemiological regulations.
Hungary has reported 300 cases of coronavirus and 10 deaths. British diplomat Steven Dick died in the country on Tuesday.
