This is what Atlatszo reported last week


Lőrinc Mészáros’ starch factory polluted the water reservoir of the Mátra Power Plant


Visonta-based Viresol filed a lawsuit against Atlatszo when we first reported about their pollution in November, which caused toxic gas leakages at the Mátra Power Plant, where several workers became ill. Atlatszo now obtained a recent decision of the Hungarian Disaster Management Authority which confirms our findings: the authority bans Viresol from further use of the Őzse Valley Water Reservoir, and obliges the private company to develop a wastewater management system in order to avoid further damage to the environment. Although Viresol was documented polluting the reservoir up until January this year, the decision of the authorities was kept secret.


New features: Interactive Epidemic Simulator and 3D Epidemic Map added to Coronamonitor


With the Epidemic Simulator, you can model different scenarios yourself by setting more than 10 parameters. On the three-dimensional map you can view and analyze the national distribution of the epidemic and settlement-level data. The new graph showing the active growth factor gives an idea of ​​the slowing pace of the epidemic.
