The pandemic is still very present throughout the world and the number of infections and deaths continues to increase in a very worrying way in many parts of the world. In Europe, restrictions are extended in many countries to prevent the further spread of a virus that continues to affect the economy and the health of many of its citizens.

The European Center for Disease Control (ECDC), which depends on the European Union, publishes a weekly list of the regions with the highest incidence of COVID-19 in the last 14 days. This list includes areas of 31 European states.

Four Spanish communities among those with the highest incidence accumulated in the last 14 days

It should be noted that the two areas most affected by the coronavirus in the last 14 days are Spanish: the Valencian Community and the Region of Murcia. Valencians add an incidence of 1,820.51 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, while the Murcians add 1.811,63 for the same number of inhabitants.

Among the top ten there are also two other territories of Spain: Castilla-La Mancha and Extremadura. The community of La Mancha is in eighth position and accumulates an incidence of 1,424.34 infected per 100,000 inhabitants. For its part, Extremadura is ninth and also exceeds 1,400 cases per 100,000 inhabitants: 1.416,43.

Worrisome data in Portugal and the Czech Republic

Together with Spain, Portugal and the Czech Republic are the other two worst-off countries in this ranking. The Portuguese, who live in an “extreme” situation due to the increase in cases in recent days, occupy the fourth, fifth, sixth and tenth position. Likewise, the Czechs complete the top ten places with three representatives occupying the third and seventh positions.

The Spanish regions with the least incidence

On the opposite side, that is, the ones with the best data regarding COVID-19 cases in the last 14 days, there are four Spanish communities: Canary Islands, Cantabria, Navarra and Asturias. These four regions would not exceed, according to this report, 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, which is the limit proposed by the European Commission to consider it as the maximum risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2.
