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 February 6, 2023, the countries with the highest 14-day cumulative incidence are the following:
Austria is the European country whose cumulative incidence over the past 14 days is highest with a total of 521 diagnosed cases per 100 000 population. This is followed by Germany with 189 diagnosed cases per 100,000 population and Serbia with 134.
