The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has added four more countries to its red list on its coronavirus map, meaning those nations have crossed the threshold of 120 infections per 100,000 people in the last two weeks.
The Netherlands, Iceland, Denmark and Hungary were added to list on Tuesday.
The Netherlands has registered 2,921 new infections in the last 24 hours. The country introduced a series of additional measures to fight a second wave, including the closing of all bars and restaurants at 10 p.m.
Iceland reported over 80 new infections during the weekend according to the ECDC, but given the country’s small population even the slightest increase in cases can have a significant impact on the infection rate.
Denmark has seen the highest number of new cases in four months, according to the ECDC’s data.
The full list of “red” countries, with more than 120 cases per 100,000 people:
- Spain (320)
