Meanwhile, the UK will be drawn Dark red as a “high risk” area On the map of the European Agency.
For ECDC, France is in the green, like Italy, much of Greece and its islands and the entire European Mediterranean coast, as well as countries like Poland (with 3.13 new cases per 100,000 residents in 14 days) and Slovakia (6.72 new cases). ), two countries classified by some British media as Strong candidates to go green when checking the next traffic lightThis Thursday the fifteenth.

This is the European Agency for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) risk map.
Expert travel journalist Paul Charles believes that the Balearic Islands could go directly from the green list to the red list, due to the occurrence of more than 400 new cases per 100,000 residents in 14 days.
According to ECDC Standards, the green Lowest risk category means transmission, with rates of less than 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days.

Government scientific advisors have already warned of potentially dire consequencesيمة If Johnson goes ahead with his plans to remove all restrictions.
The fact that nightclubs are reopening from Monday, social distancing rules are abandoned and masks are no longer mandatory, represents to doctors that the country suffers between 200 and 400 deaths every day. They stressed that stopping the truce is “irresponsible and dangerous.”
