Ten countries in the European Union with the worst epidemic situation

The epidemiological situation is currently “extremely worrying” in ten countries of the European Union. The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) said Friday that the situation is deteriorating across Europe.

The European Center for Disease Control and Prevention updates the list of countries at epidemic risk on a weekly basis. AFP reports that Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland and Slovenia are now classified in the most severe category.

The center also said that the “general epidemiological situation” in recent days was characterized by a high and rapid increase in the number of infections and a “low mortality rate, but it is increasing slowly.”

According to the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention, at the same time, an increase in the rate of infections, deaths and hospitalizations, including in intensive care units, is expected in the next two weeks. The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control added that “countries with low vaccination rates remain the most affected.”

Germany was on the list of countries with the second worst “extremely worrying” situation, along with Slovakia and Austria. France, along with Cyprus and Portugal, ended up on the list of countries with a “slightly worrying” situation. By contrast, Italy, Malta, Spain and Sweden were included in the low risk list.

Compared to the previous week’s list, a total of four countries (Belgium, Finland, Liechtenstein and Poland) were re-ranked as worse. In turn, the situation has improved in five countries (Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Latvia and Sweden). The remaining 21 countries remained in the same category.

He adds that the seven-day infection rate – the number of infected people per 100,000 of the population in the past seven days – should be up to 300, while in the case of death 2.7.
