Southern Europe is totally red on Thursday on the corona map of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). The map reflects the incidence rate of the coronavirus (number of infections per 100,000 inhabitants) over the last fourteen days and the positivity rate of Covid tests. The Iberian Peninsula is completely colored in dark red, just like mainland Greece and the majority of its islands, which means that the incidence there is above 500 and the positivity rate there exceeds 4%.
Unlike in previous weeks, Italy no longer presents the slightest yellow region. The country is covered in red. In the south of the boot, seven regions are tinged with light red (rate between 200 and 499), including Sicily and Sardinia.
On the European continent, only Romania presents a predominantly yellow and green face, with the exception of its capital Bucharest.
French overseas territories such as Guadeloupe, Martinique, Mayotte and Saint-Martin are also still yellow.
Belgium is still in dark red since November 4.
Please note: the Belgian rules will only be updated on Saturday
The Belgian authorities have also relayed the new European map on the internet, but are warning citizens. “This map is published for information only, the official national updates for Belgium take place on Saturday“, specify the authorities.
The color codes to be used for the risk assessment (for example for the passenger tracking form) are those published on this site of the Belgian authorities: https://www.info-coronavirus.be/fr/code-couleur -by country/
