Flanders and many areas turn orange again, situation worsens in Eastern Europe

Flanders changed from red to orange on the European Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (ECTC) map updated on Thursday. The same is true for parts of France and Spain. The ECDC publishes a European map every Thursday based on the number of infections and the percentage of positive tests over the past 14 days. It comes in four colors: green, orange, red and dark red.

A positive ratio of less than 50% is more than 4% when an area turns orange, events 50 to 75 and a positive ratio of more than 1%, or a positive ratio of less than 4% when the event is between 75 and 200. The color red is used in two cases: when the event represents the number of new cases per 100,000 people in 14,000 days, fluctuating from 75 to 200, with a positive ratio of more than 4% or when a positive ratio of 200 to 500 occurs.
