The European ECDC publishes the map every Thursday. The service is looking at the number of confirmed infections and the percentage of positive tests in the previous two calendar weeks. The card has four colors. From low to high, these are green, orange, red and dark red.
source of fire
Friesland has overtaken Flevoland and is now the largest fire in the country. More than 1,800 Friesians have tested positive in the past two weeks, equivalent to 277 per 100,000 people. That’s 9 percent more than in last week’s map. A slight increase can be observed in Limburg and Zeeland and in Drenthe, the number of positive tests remains the same. In the rest of the country, the number of new cases is down compared to previous counts. The decrease is greatest in Flevoland and Overijssel at more than 9 percent.
improvement in southern Europe
Improvement can be seen in other countries. In Greece, the last zones are from dark red to red. For example, Portugal and Flanders switched from red to orange. This also applies to Tuscany in Italy and large parts of France. In Spain, the area appears green for the first time in months, the lowest warning color.
In Central Europe, on the other hand, the number of positive tests is increasing. Western Slovenia went dark red. Romania is now all red, while the country has been mostly orange with one green area last week. In Austria, more federal states are shown in red. All of Slovakia is now orange.
Countries use the ECDC map to determine their policies. At the end of July, at the height of the fourth wave, Holland was almost completely red. This was the reason why countries such as Germany and France introduced stricter rules for the Dutch who wanted to cross the border.
