COVID-19 situation update for the EU/EEA, as of week 8, updated 4 March 2021

ECDC switched to a weekly reporting schedule for the COVID-19 situation worldwide and in the EU/EEA and the UK on 17 December 2020. Hence, all daily updates have been discontinued from 14 December. ECDC will publish updates on the number of cases and deaths reported worldwide and aggregated by week every Thursday. The weekly data will be available as downloadable files in the following formats: XLSX, CSV, JSON and XML. 

With the switch from daily to weekly reporting, ECDC will shift its Epidemic Intelligence (EI) resources from case counting to signal/event detection and resume its regular EI activities, which will include COVID-19 signal and event detection and analysis but also other potential threats.

Data presented on this page are collected between Monday and Wednesday for the preceding week and published on Thursdays

Disclaimer: National updates are published at different times and in different time zones. This, and the time ECDC needs to process these data, may lead to discrepancies between the national numbers and the numbers published by ECDC. Users are advised to use all data with caution and awareness of their limitations. Data are subject to retrospective corrections; corrected datasets are released as soon as processing of updated national data has been completed.
