Nowhere in western Europe are so many corona cases diagnosed as in Limburg. In the province, 22,482 inhabitants have tested positive in the past two weeks. That equates to 2012 cases for every 100,000 inhabitants, or one in every fifty Limburgers. This is also a record for the Netherlands, since the beginning of the epidemic, a province has never had so many positive tests.

Limburg and the eleven other provinces remain, as expected, at the highest warning level. Just like last week, they turn dark red on the European corona map. This is determined every Thursday by the European health service ECDC. The map shows a total of 212 regions. Limburg and sixteen other regions have more than 2000 infections per 100,000 people.

Most infections are found in central Europe. In the Austrian state of Salzburg from 8 to 21 November 3,237 tested positive for every 100,000 inhabitants. Then comes Upper Austria. Other countries with many positive tests are Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Slovenia and Croatia.

The number of confirmed infections is also increasing in other European countries. Sardinia was the last region in all of Europe to be green last week, the lowest warning level, but is now going to orange.
