NOTE: On 2 September 2021, Ireland recommenced their COVID-19 reporting through the Computerised Infectious Disease Reporting (CIDR) system, after a major cyberattack on 14 May 2021. Data validation of interim reporting for this period has resulted in a decrease of approximately 1 700 cases. Historic corrections for the worldwide weekly data update published Thursday’s will be available in the next update, however, the daily EU/EEA database might be updated earlier if available.
