“More and more European countries are facing a sharp increase in the number of new cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Romania has not been bypassed by this trend, but in the last week it has been overtaken, at the rate of illness, by more and more states. Unfortunately, although it has even three times fewer cases than the states in the first places in the top of infections, Romania is on the first place in terms of the death rate in the last 14 days, compared to 100,000 inhabitants “, transmits Digi24.
Thus, according to the latest data transmitted at European level on 21 September (photo below), Romania ranks 10th in cases (91.5) in the last 14 days, compared to 100,000 inhabitants, being surpassed by Spain – 300.5, France – 192.5, Belgium – 116.1, the Netherlands – 109.8, the Czech Republic, 198, Austria – 105.7, Hungary – 107.2, Luxembourg – 147.9, Malta – 120.4, mentions the quoted source.
However, the situation is critical in the case of Romania regarding the death rate registered in the last 14 days, compared to 100,000 inhabitants. Our country leads this negative top with a rate of 2.8, followed by Spain with 2.3.
