In Latvia, mortality with a diagnosis of Covid-19 is higher than the EU / EEA / Day average


ECDC estimates of the situation over the past two weeks, from 27 December to 9 January, show that the mortality rate from diagnosed Covid-19 in Latvia has risen again, reaching 84.4 cases per million population, leading to an increase from ninth to seventh place among the 30 EU / EEA countries with the highest mortality. The highest mortality rates are recorded in Poland, Bulgaria and Croatia, where the number of deaths exceeds 140 per million inhabitants.

The average mortality rate with Covid-19 diagnosed in the EU and EEA during this period was 49.2 cases per million population.

In the rest of the Baltic States, mortality rates have fallen relatively sharply. In Lithuania, the mortality rate in the previous two weeks was 39.7 cases per million population and Lithuania is in 14th place among the EU / EEA countries. In Estonia, on the other hand, the number of deaths is 29.3 per million population and it is currently ranked 17th among EU / EEA countries in terms of mortality from diagnosed with Covid-19.

At the same time, despite the recent rapid increase, Latvia has had a lower infection rate with Covid-19 since November than the EU / EEA average.

In Latvia, the cumulative morbidity per 100,000 population from December 27 to January 9 was 860.7 cases, but in the EU / EEA countries it is on average 2007.8 cases.

Latvia is currently ranked 22nd among 30 EU / EEA countries in terms of the incidence of Covid-19. However, during this week, the incidence of Covid-19 in Latvia continues to grow rapidly

The highest incidence in the EU / EEA in the last two weeks has been in Cyprus, with 5,571.6 cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 population. The threshold of 4,000 cases is exceeded in Ireland, Iceland, France, Greece and Denmark, while more than 3,000 cases have been recorded in Portugal.

In the last two weeks in Latvia, the infection rate among the population aged 65 and over was 337.5 cases per 100,000 population, and we are ranked 24th among the EU / EEA countries in this indicator. The EU / EEA average is 771.4 cases per 100,000 population.
