Latvia has dropped to the 12th place among European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) countries by Covid-19 incidence, according to information released by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), LETA reported July 8.

Latvia's Covid-19 incidence was the fifth highest in Europe last week and the third-highest the week before. In mid-June, Latvia even recorded the highest Covid-19 incidence in Europe.

According to ECDC estimates for the time period from June 21 to July 4, Latvia's cumulative 14-day number of Covid-19 cases per 100,000 population dropped to 43. The 11 countries with higher incidence numbers were Cyprus, Portugal, Spain, Luxembourg, Greece, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Lichtenstein, and Norway.

Neighboring Estonia's Covid-19 incidence has fallen to 29.27 cases per 100,00 population and Lithuania's Covid-19 incidence is down to 17.32 cases per 100,000 population, according to ECDC data.

Latvia's 14-day rate of Covid-19 deaths per one million population has also decreased to 16.77 cases per million population. This figure, however, is the third-highest among EU and EEA member states where Covid-19 deaths have been falling faster.
