Take note – story published 2 years ago

Latvia's Covid-19 incidence is currently the third-highest in Europe, despite a considerable improvement of the situation the past week, according to information provided by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), reports the LETA newswire.

According to ECDC estimates, Latvia's cumulative two-week number of Covid-19 cases per 100,000 population is 104.7, the third highest among member states of the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA).

Although Latvia's Covid-19 incidence continues to drop (the ECDC figures are based upon data from a few days ago), elsewhere in Europe it has been decreasing at a faster rate.

Only Portugal and Spain have higher Covid-19 infection rates at the moment by the ECDC criteria, as these countries have seen an increase since the previous week.

Meanwhile, two-week cumulative incidence level of Covid-19 in Estonia is at 49.8 cases this week, and in Lithuania 61.1.
