Health Inspection Conducted At Szeged Railway Station In Hungary
A public health inspection carried out at and around the railway station in Szeged, southern Hungary, did not reveal any problems, the Csongrád County chief medical officer reported. Tünde Bosnyákovits said the inspection was conducted after illegal migrants were taken to hospital on Tuesday from Budapest’s Nyugati railway station with symptoms of digestive infections and because approximately 700-800 migrants travel by train from Szeged to Budapest a day.

The inspection found that hygienic conditions just outside the station, where volunteer are helping migrants, were adequate, the medical officer said, adding that the workers’ wooden cabins and refrigerators were clean.

Bosnyákovits said the food given to the migrants would also be inspected.

State-owned railway company MÁV said carriages regularly travelling to Budapest would be disinfected.

Bosnyákovits said it was clear that the infection seen in Budapest has not shown up in Szeged, adding that both the railway company and the volunteer workers were constantly taking infection prevention measures.
