Countries with the highest 14-day cumulative incidence
Cumulative incidence indicates the spread of a disease in a population and over a given time. The 14-day period has been established because experts point out that it is the time that best reflects the epidemiological situation of a territory due to delays in the notification of new infections and the time it takes for the virus to manifest itself in people.
According to data provided by Johns Hopkins University, as of November 29, the countries with the highest cumulative incidence at 14 days are the following:
Czechia is the European country whose cumulative incidence over the past 14 days is highest with a total of 3 719 diagnosed cases per 100 000 population. This is followed by Greece with 940 diagnosed cases per 100,000 inhabitants and France with 891.
