Maps in support of the Council Recommendation on a coordinated approach to travel measures in the EU

ECDC publishes maps and data on the COVID-19 pandemic across the EU/EEA every Thursday. A comprehensive report on the current epidemiological situation in EU/EEA Member States can be found in the ECDC Weekly Country Overview Report. Further epidemiological indicators and analysis of COVID-19 data can be found here.

In the maps below, EU/EEA Member States are classified according to an indicator which is based on the 14-day notification rate, weighted by the vaccine uptake of the region.

Formula for the indicator:

Weighted rate = (C+C*(100-V)/100)/2

Where C is the 14-day case notification rate in the specific region and V is the vaccine uptake in the region

Colour coding and thresholds:

  • Green, if the weighted rate is less than 40;
  • Orange, if the weighted rate is less than 100 but 40 or more;
  • Red, if the weighted rate is less than 300 but 100 or more;
  • Dark red, if the weighted rate is 300 or more;
  • Dark grey, if the testing rate is 600 or less;
  • Grey, if insufficient data is available.

Background

These maps are published to comply with the Council Recommendation on a coordinated approach to the restriction of free movement in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The latest revision of the Council Recommendation was adopted by EU Member States on 25 January 2022 and came into effect on 1 February 2022. As of 1 February 2022, the Council has requested that ECDC classify EEU/EEA Member States according to an indicator based on the 14-day notification rate, weighted by the vaccine uptake of the region. These maps should be considered only for the purposes described in the Council recommendation.

The maps are based on data reported by EU Member States to The European Surveillance System (TESSy) database by 23:59 every Tuesday.
