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.
We urge you to follow the instructions and guidelines below:
As the students of the University of Pécs, we respectfully ask you to comply with legislation, precautionary measures and suggestions in your day to day life, since it is our collective interest and responsibility to reduce the spread of COVID-19, to protect our environment and our loved ones as well!
Thanks and regards,
Student Council of the University of Pécs
