The alert threshold of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) is 20 cases per 100,000 people in seven days. Germany (18.4 cases per 100,000), Finland (15.5), Cyprus (14.6), and Norway (13.9) are below the threshold, ECDC data showed on Monday. At the other end of the scale are the Czech Republic (167.6), the Netherlands (140.3), and France (120.3), according to the source.

Meanwhile, several European countries have announced the reintroduction of restrictions.

In Ireland, the health authorities would have recommended placing the whole country in the highest level of restrictions. Iceland has introduced a number of new rules, including restrictions on meetings and leisure facilities. Paris is on the verge of a new quarantine, and the Czech Republic has entered a state of emergency. The central districts of Berlin have been classified as risk areas by the German health authorities.

Meanwhile, European Commission President  Ursula von der Leyen isolated herself after attending a meeting, where a person was tested positive.

Health authorities in England have acknowledged that thousands of infections have not been included in the balance sheet due to a “technical problem.”
