Europe covid cases MAPPED: 10 countries with highest coronavirus infection rates | World | News
The ECDC ranked countries by taking into account both case and death numbers alongside their infection rates.
As such, some countries with comparatively low infection rates may gravitate towards the top because they have more cases.
For instance, Czechia has the highest infection rate alone at 1323.8, but it comes eighth out of the top 10 due to its comparatively low caseload of 258,097.
The UK also has a higher infection rate than Spain, but currently ranks third behind the country due to its nearly 200,000 fewer cases.
