“The epidemic situation in the EU is currently characterized by a rapid and significant increase and a low but slow rising mortality rate,” the European Center for Disease Control (ECDC) summarizes in its latest risk assessment.

“The number of cases, hospitalizations and deaths are all expected to increase in the next two weeks,” said a Stockholm-based European company.

Of the 27 countries, Belgium, Poland, the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary and Slovenia are among the most concerned.

Countries in the “concern” category include Germany, Austria, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Romania and Slovakia.

Three countries are in the “moderate concern” category (France, Portugal, Cyprus) and four countries are in the “moderate concern” category (Italy, Spain, Sweden and Malta).

The method used by the ECDC to classify countries into categories of concern is based on absolute values ​​(number of cases, hospital admissions and deaths) and their latest evolution.

According to its latest estimates, the number of cases and deaths is expected to increase by about 50% in the next two weeks, reaching 300 new cases per week and 2.7 deaths per 100,000 population.
