Lhe Brussels region has changed to red on the map of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), updated on Thursday. This change is linked to a recent rapid increase in contaminations in our country and particularly in the Brussels Region.



The color code of a country on the map is defined by incidence and positivity rate. A region is shown in red in two cases. For the first, it is necessary that the incidence, which gives the number of new cases per 100,000 inhabitants over 14 days, is between 75 and 200 and that the percentage of positive test is 4% or more. The second only concerns the incidence which must be above 200 but below 500.

With an incidence of 213 and a positivity rate of 2.5% (according to figures from Sciensano), Brussels is in the second scenario.

In addition to the Brussels Region, Corsica, Ireland and the Greek regions of Thessaly and the Ionian and Aegean Islands have also adopted the color red. The Italian regions of Lazio, Sardinia and Sicily, as well as much of France, turn orange.

Several Spanish regions are (Aragon, Valence, Mallorca and Ibiza) faded to scarlet red.

As a reminder, if you go to a red zone, you must respect a quarantine, (unless you have the European digital covid certificate in order, that you have a certificate of recovery or a negative PCR test of less than 72 hours).
