Dark red on the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) map marks the regions of Europe most affected by the coronavirus.
LDutch Limburg appears in dark red on the new map of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), whose criteria member states validated on Friday.
This shade marks the regions of Europe most affected by the coronavirus. It means that the incidence rate there was more than 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over 14 days, in this case the second and third weeks of January.
For these areas most at risk, tests and quarantine should apply even in the event of essential travel, according to the recommendations adopted by the member states. These are supposed to ensure the consistency of these recommendations not only for cross-border travel, but also for travel within a national territory, where zones of different colors can coexist.

Belgium is tinged with orange red, signifying an incidence rate of between 150 and 500.
About fifteen countries show dark red areas on the new ECDC map, the most affected being Portugal, Spain, Ireland, Slovenia, Czechia, Estonia and Latvia.
