Currently, 3 countries of the European Economic Area have less than 16 cases per 100 000 population: Latvia, Finland and Cyprus. The incidence rate in Lithuania has also exceeded the threshold and currently stands at 16.1. 

It has again gone up in Italy and the United Kingdom, where they exceed 25 cases per 100 000 population over the last 14 days. This means that arrivals from these countries will be subject to mandatory testing for coronavirus infection.
