MADRID – As every week, the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) on Thursday adjusted the map of Europe, which shows green, red and orange colors indicating the corona situation in areas or countries. Countries such as the Netherlands and Belgium base their travel advice partly on this map and the information from ECDC.
PLEASE NOTE: The color chart of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) is NOT the same as the color chart regarding travel advice in the Netherlands. While the ECDC map of Europe has placed Spain on RED and DARK RED, the Netherlands has Spain on tuesday 27 july given the color YELLOW for the travel advice.
It European Center for Disease Prevention and Control updated the map on Thursday, July 29, showing the combined indicator of a 14-day report rate, test rate, and test positivity as updated on July 29, 2021. THIS WEBSITE you can see the map and the indicators regarding the colors green, orange, red and dark red or gray.
Since Thursday 29 July, Spain still has the color RED has but more regions have been added with DARK RED. Except for the autonomous regions of Castilla-La Mancha and the Canary Islands, all other autonomous regions have been given the color DARK RED.
RED applies to the Canarische Eilanden (Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, La Graciosa, El Hierro, La Gomera on La Palma) in Castilla-La Mancha.
DARK RED applies to the rest of Spain, namely Catalonia, Aragon, Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera), Valencia region, Castile and León, Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria, Navarra, La Rioja, Andalusia, Murcia region, Extremadura, Madrid region and Basque Country.
No area/region has the color ORANGE or GREEN got.
The Netherlands is also increasingly colored DARK RED on the map and the provinces of Limburg (NEW) North Holland, South Holland, Utrecht, North Brabant, Gelderland and Overijssel have kept or acquired the dark red color. Zeeland, Drenthe, Friesland and Flevoland will continue to keep the color RED. The netherlands have last tuesday 27 july adjusted the travel advice and given all EU countries the color YELLOW or GREEN, which means that the Netherlands deviates from the ECDC map with colours.
The Flemish and Walloon regions still have the color ORANGE except for the Brussels-Capital Region, which was again given the color RED on 22 July. In principle, Belgium looks every Sunday at the list of countries and the color codes that they have received from the ECDC on Thursday. Green and orange changes will then be entered from Monday, and if an area/region or country changes to red, it will be entered on Wednesday. Sometimes in Belgium people deviate from this and changes are already indicated on Friday.
