All EU countries except Finland are rated red by the EU Corona traffic light with the highest warning level.
According to Thursday’s update, besides Finland, only individual regions of Greece and the Azores, which belong to Portugal, are rated orange on the EU map to assess the corona situation. Green light is only available for Denmark’s autonomous territory Greenland.
Grey appeared on Friday morning Liechtenstein and Slovakia, which means that the EU health agency ECDC does not yet have enough information for a re-evaluation. The so-called EU Corona Traffic Light was created following a decision by the EU Council to better coordinate restrictions on the freedom to travel to contain the corona pandemic within the EU. As this is a recommendation to which the EU countries are not bound, criticism is levelled at the fact that the card does nothing to harmonize national regulations.
Across Europe, the number of infections has risen rapidly in recent weeks, and the measures taken in the individual EU countries vary. On November 19, EU heads of state and government will meet virtually to discuss the pandemic and the response to it once again.
