The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) on Thursday upgraded the coronavirus risk level of Croatia's coastline from red to orange, after the Covid-19 incidence rate in those areas had dropped to less than 50 new cases per 100,000 people over the last 14 days.

These maps are published by ECDC every Thursday and are part of the EU’s coordinated travel regime during the pandemic.

The Adriatic coast of Croatia is now marked orange. The criteria for orange areas are either when 14-day caseload drops below 50 coronavirus cases per 100,000 people, with test positivity rate of 4 percent or higher, or if the 14-day notification rate is between 25 and 150 cases per 100,000 and the test positivity rate is under 4 percent, state agency Hina reported on Thursday.

According to ECDC, Croatia’s total 14-day incidence rate is 139.84 per 100,000 people.

Most of Spain, France, the whole of Denmark, Belgium, and the Netherlands, Baltic countries, Slovenia, northern Norway, and large parts of Greece are still marked as red on the ECDC map.

The best, green, label is given if the 14-day caseload is lower than 25 cases per 100,000 and the test positivity rate is under 4 percent. On the latest map, green areas include Iceland, almost all of Finland, Malta, some parts of Romania, Poland, and Italy.

The maps are based on data reported by EU countries to the European Surveillance System database every Tuesday.
