          Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Monday secured the right to rule by decree after his Fidesz party passed a law in parliament granting him open-ended extra powers to fight the coronavirus outbreak.


          The legislation extending a state of emergency has triggered criticism from opposition parties, human rights groups and the Council of Europe, Europe's main rights forum, as it contains no timeframe.

          It also imposes jail time of up to five years on those hindering measures aimed at containing the spread of the virus in Hungary and on those spreading false information related to the crisis.

          Rights groups said this could be used to muzzle journalists....

          Orban has said the epidemic was expected to peak in Hungary in June or July and flagged economic stimulus to be announced next month. Hungary has 447 confirmed cases of the coronavirus, and 15 deaths.

                        The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Hungary has reached 744, up 11 compared to yesterday, according to data by government coronavirus information site

                        Four patients with underlying medical conditions have passed away, increasing the coronavirus death toll to 38. The age of the four latest victims varied between 61 years and 94 years.

                        The total number of recoveries stands at 67, up one since yesterday...

                                Government data showed confirmed coronavirus cases jumped by 210 to 1,190 over the past 24 hours, and the death toll now stands at 77.

                                The crisis has presented Orban with the toughest challenge to his decade-long rule. His response - to rule by decree indefinitely - has drawn criticism from the European Union.

                                “It seems as if other countries are already peeking out (of the crisis), as if there was already light at the end of the tunnel,” Orban told public radio in an interview. “For now, I do not see this in Hungary.”

                                “We have won time, we have been defending ourselves well, but the real test is yet to come,” Orban said, adding that Hungary appeared to be heading towards a period of mass infections and it would be difficult to avert such an outcome.
