As of 13 March 2020, the World Health Organization considered Europe the active centre of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic. Cases by country across Europe had doubled over periods of typically 3 to 4 days, with some countries (mostly those at earlier stages of detection) showing doubling every 2 days.[3]

As of 17 March 2020, all countries within Europe had a confirmed case of COVID-19, with Montenegro being the last European country to report at least one case.[4] In 18 countries, at least one death has been reported.

As of 18 March, more than 250 million people are in lockdown in Europe.[5]

Risk assessment for the pandemic in the EU/EEA and UK

As of 17 March 2020, there had been 2,740 reported deaths in the EU/EEA and UK from COVID-19[6] (25 March number: 10,049).

On 13 March 2020, the following COVID-19 related risks were assessed by the ECDC:[7]

Risk Level
risk of severe disease associated with COVID-19 infection for people in the EU/EEA and UK: general population moderate
risk of severe disease associated with COVID-19 infection for people in the EU/EEA and UK: older adults and individuals with chronic underlying conditions high
risk of milder disease, and the consequent impact on social and work-related activity, high
risk of the occurrence of sub-national community transmission of COVID-19 in the EU/EEA and the UK very high
risk of occurrence of widespread national community transmission of COVID-19 in the EU/EEA and the UK in the coming weeks high
risk of healthcare system capacity being exceeded in the EU/EEA and the UK in the coming weeks high
risk associated with transmission of COVID-19 in health and social institutions with large vulnerable populations high

EU coordination

Under the European Union subsidiarity principle, the European Union does not have the legal powers to impose health management policy or actions, such as quarantine measures or closing schools, on member states.[8]

On 28 February 2020, the EU opened a tender process for the purpose of purchasing COVID-19 related medical equipment. Twenty member states submitted requests for purchases. A second round procedure was opened on 17 March, for the purchase of gloves, goggles, face protectors, surgical masks and clothing. Poland was among the member states that applied for the second round tender procedure. The European Commission claimed that all the purchases were satisfied by offers. Commissioner Thierry Breton described the procedure as illustrating the power of EU coordination.[8] On 19 March, the EU announced the creation of the rescEU strategic stockpile of medical equipment, to be financed at the level of 90% by the Commission, to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.[9] Former European Central Bank president Mario Draghi stated that member states should absorb coronavirus losses, rather than the private sector. He compared the impact of coronavirus to World War I.[10]

Nine European countries—Italy, France, Belgium, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, Slovenia and Luxembourg—called for "corona bonds" (a type of eurobond) in order to help their countries to recover from the epidemic, on 25 March. Their letter stated, "The case for such a common instrument is strong, since we are all facing a symmetric external shock."[11][12] Corona bonds were discussed on 26 March 2020 in a meeting between heads of government of EU member states, but Germany and the Netherlands ruled out issuing such bonds. The summit dragged out for three hours longer than expected due to the "emotional" reactions of the prime ministers of Spain and Italy.[13][10] European Central Bank head Christine Lagarde, who plans (separately) to issue more than 1 trillion euros in bonds in response to coronavirus, urged the EU to consider issuing corona bonds.[10]

Pandemic by country and territory

Counting of cases are subject to the number of tested people.


The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic was confirmed to have reached Albania on 8 March 2020, a father and son who had travelled from Florence, Italy.[56] On 23 March, the total number of confirmed cases rose to 104.[57]


The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic was confirmed to have reached Andorra on 2 March 2020, a 20-year-old man who had returned from Milan.[58] With a total population of 77,543 (as of 31 December 2019), on 6 April infection rate was 1 case per 147 inhabitants and death rate is 1 case per 3,693 inhabitants.


The 2019–2020 coronavirus pandemic was confirmed to have spread to Austria on 25 February, a 24-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman travelling from Lombardy, Italy, who were treated at a hospital in Innsbruck.[59][60][61][62] As of 6 April 2020, Austria has reported 12,206 cases of which 220 have died and 3,463 have recovered.[63]


The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic was confirmed to have spread to Belarus, when the first case of COVID-19 in the country was registered in Minsk on 28 February 2020.[64]

The 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic was first confirmed to have spread to Belgium on 4 February 2020, when a Belgian national out of a group of nine Belgians repatriated from Wuhan to Brussels tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.[66][67] Transmission within Belgium was then confirmed early March at the end of the school holidays (spring break) around carnival, when many tourists back from Northern Italy returned to work or school,[68][obsolete source] leading to an epidemic with a rapid increase in cases in March–April 2020. By the end of March, cases had been registered in all 10 provinces of the country.[citation needed]

As of 6 April 2020, there have been 20,814 confirmed cases reported by the Belgian authorities, with a total of 1,632 deaths and 3,986 discharged patients. Currently, 5,840 people in Belgian hospitals are suffering from COVID-19, including 1,257 in intensive care.[69] The actual number of infections, however, is likely to be much higher than the number of diagnosed cases, as laboratory tests are being limited to specific people and/or people with severe symptoms, as well as many people with mild or no symptoms do not seek medical help while they are likely to be transmitting the virus.[70]

Bosnia and Herzegovina

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic was confirmed to have reached Bosnia and Herzegovina on 5 March 2020 in Banja Luka, who had been in Italy during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. Later the same day, a second case who was the son of the first case.[71] On 21 March, the first death in the country from COVID-19 was announced in a hospital in Bihać. The patient was an elderly woman who had been hospitalized two days before.[72]

As of 6 April 2020, in Bosnia and Herzegovina there were 696 confirmed coronavirus cases, of which 304 were in Republika Srpska,[73][74] 379 in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina,[75][76] and 13 in Brčko District.[77]

On 17 March 2020, the Council of Ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina declared a state of emergency in all of Bosnia and Herzegovina.[78]

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic was confirmed to have spread to Bulgaria when the country's first case was confirmed on 8 March 2020, a 27-year-old man from Pleven and a 75-year-old woman from Gabrovo. Neither of the two had traveled to areas with known coronavirus cases. The man tested positive for the virus after being hospitalized for a respiratory infection, and authorities announced plans to test several people who were in contact with the two individuals.[80] Two other samples in Pleven and Gabrovo were positive on 8 March.[81] Patient zero remains unknown.[82]

After the number of patients in the country had reached 23, the Bulgarian Parliament voted unanimously to declare a state of emergency from 13 March until 13 April.[83] A 14-day preventive house quarantine was introduced for citizens who have been in contact with a COVID-19 patient or have returned from an overseas region with a high number of cases. For patients tested positive for the virus a 21-day house quarantine was introduced. This time span is counted from the day a subsequent test comes out negative after they have been treated in a hospital or at home. After the WHO has established that COVID-19 is more resilient than the initial data was showing, the National Crisis-management Staff increased the recovery house quarantine by a week to 28 days.[84] With the continuing increase of COVID-19 cases on a daily basis, on 1 April the Bulgarian government requested that Parliament extends the state of emergency by one month until 13 May.

As of 6 April 2020, there are 549 confirmed cases in 25 out of 28 Bulgarian provinces, with 22 recorded deaths and 39 recoveries. A total of 15,899 tests had been performed by 5 April.

On 12 March, the first recovery was reported, and on 18 March the first death from the virus was confirmed. On 19 March, the number of recorded cases surpassed 100. On 21 March, it surpassed 200. On 25 March, it surpassed 400. On 31 March, it surpassed 800. The pandemic in Croatia occurred during the Croatian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.[87]

On 22 March, an intense earthquake hit Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, causing problems in enforcement of social distancing measures set out by the Government. The earthquake could also be felt across much of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, Slovenia, and Austria.[88][89]

According to Oxford University, as of 24 March, Croatia is the country with the world's strictest restrictions and measures for infection reduction in relation to the number of infected.[90]

The government set up a website for all information about the virus and a new phone line 113 that has volunteers answering questions.[91]

On 27 February, Denmark confirmed its first case.[97]

As of 16 March, there have been 898 confirmed cases in Denmark, including 11 in the Faroe Islands (see below).[33]

Numerous preventive measures gradually were implemented. Starting on 13 March, schools, universities and similar places were closed, while most people in non-essential functions have been sent home to work.[98] On 14 March, the borders were closed for all entries, except Danish citizens, people with a residence permit, people with an important reason for visiting, and transport of goods.[99][95]


On 27 February Estonia confirmed its first case, an Iranian citizen, travelling from Iran via Turkey.[100]

As of 11 March there were 17 confirmed cases in Estonia. 12 of them had returned with the infection from Northern Italy, one from France, one from Iran and one from undisclosed risk area.[101][102] First two cases of virus transmitting locally were in Saaremaa after international volleyball competition involving a team from Milan.[103]

From 12 March the virus was spreading locally. The number of infected grew fast reaching 109 on 14 March.[104]


The first case was reported in the country on 28 January.[105][106]


Empty supermarket shelves in Annonay, France, on 14 mars 2020.

On 24 January, the first case in Europe was confirmed in Bordeaux. Two more cases were confirmed in Paris by the end of the day, all of them originated from China. A cluster of infections was discovered in Haute-Savoie which originated from a British national who had visited Singapore.[107][108][109]

On 14 February, an 80-year-old Chinese tourist died in Bichat–Claude Bernard Hospital, Paris, marking the first death from COVID-19 in Europe and France.[111]

According to regional council president Jean Rottner, the starting point for the first intense wave in Alsace was the Fasting Meeting of the Protestant Free Church of La Porte Ouverte in Mulhouse, with more than 2500 visitors, in mid-February.[112] On 12 March, French president Emmanuel Macron announced on public television that all schools and all universities would close from Monday 16 March until further notice. The next day, the prime minister Édouard Philippe banned gatherings of more than 100 people, not including public transportation. The following day, the prime minister ordered the closure of all nonessential public places, including restaurants, cafés, cinemas, and discothèques, effective at midnight.[113]

As of 14 March, there had been 4,499 confirmed cases (a near-four-fold increase over the number 5 days previously), and 91 deaths in France.[114]

As of 20 March, the number of confirmed cases had risen to 12,612, while the number of deaths reached 450.[1] As of March 30, more than six hundred doctors and other medical workers are suing the former Minister of Health and the Prime Minister for "culpable negligence" in failing to prepare for the epidemic.[115]

The daily update of the number of deaths in France includes only deaths in hospitals, deaths in nursing houses or at home are not included in the update. Therefore, it is difficult to know for sure the actual number of deaths due to the virus.[116]


Confirmed cases per 10,000 inhabitants by district

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic was confirmed to have reached Germany on 27 January 2020, when the first COVID-19 case was confirmed and contained near Munich, Bavaria.[117] The majority of the cases in January and early February originated from the headquarters of a car parts manufacturer there. On 25 and 26 February, multiple cases related to the Italian outbreak were detected in Baden-Württemberg. A large cluster linked to a Carnival event was formed in Heinsberg, North Rhine-Westphalia, with the first death reported on 9 March 2020.[118][119] New clusters were introduced in other regions via Heinsberg as well as via people coming from Italy, Iran and China,[120] from where non-Germans could arrive by plane until 17-18 March.

German disease and epidemic control is advised by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) according to a national pandemic plan. The outbreaks were first managed in a containment stage,[121] which attempted to minimise the expansion of clusters. The German government and several health officials stated that the country was well prepared and at first saw no need to take special measures to stock up or limit public freedom. Since 13 March, the pandemic has been managed in the protection stage with German states mandating school and kindergarten closures, postponing academic semesters and prohibiting visits to nursing homes to protect the elderly. Two days later, borders to five neighbouring countries were closed. On 22 March, the government announced a national curfew, almost identical to those in to Austria and Bavaria, where it had been implemented seven days and three days before, respectively. Individuals are only allowed to leave their living quarters for certain activities e.g. commuting to work, doing sports or for groceries, and not in groups of more than two people if they do not share the same household.

As of 6 April 2020, 101,178 cases have been reported with 1,612 deaths and approximately 28,700 recoveries.[122][123][124][125] The preliminary fatality rate in Germany was much lower than in Italy or Spain, leading to a discussion and explanations such as a higher number of tests, starting off with more intensive care beds with respiratory support, no post-mortem tests and more cases of younger people testing positive. The head of the Robert Koch Institute warned that the German death rate would increase over time.


On 26 February, the first case in Greece was confirmed, a 38-year-old woman from Thessaloniki who had recently visited Northern Italy.[126] The next day, the first patient's 9-year-old child and another 40-year-old woman, who had travelled to Italy, also tested positive.[127][128][129] Subsequent cases is Greece were mainly related to people who had travelled to Italy and a group of pilgrims who had travelled to Israel and Egypt, as well as their contacts.[130][72] Health and state authorities issued precautionary guidelines and recommendations, while measures up to that point were taken locally and included the closure of schools and the suspension of cultural events in the affected areas (particularly Ilia, Achaea and Zakynthos).[72] The first confirmed death from COVID-19 in Greece was a 66-year-old man, who died on 12 March.[131]

By 30 March, there were 1212 confirmed cases in Greece, 43 deaths and 53 recoveries.[132] The Greek National Public Health Organization (NPHO), in collaboration with local authorities and doctors, is tracking and testing everyone who came in close contact with the patients.[133][134] By March 10 the government decided to suspend the operation of educational institutions of all levels nationwide and then, on 13 March, to close down all cafes, bars, museums, shopping centres, sports facilities and restaurants in the country.[135][136] On 16 March, all retail shops were also closed and all services in all areas of religious worship of any religion or dogma were suspended.[137][138] On 18 and 19 March, the government announced a series of measures of more than 10 billion euros to support the economy, businesses and employees.[139] On 22 March the Greek authorities announced significant restrictions on all nonessential transport and movement across the country, starting from 6 a.m. on 23 March.[140]

In one week (24 March), 51 cases were reported and after two weeks there was totally 120 cases (31 March). Indexed cases count 18% out of reported, 72% cases were infected due to contact with primary cases, while the origin of infection of the rest 10% cases are not certain. [175] The Government of Montenegro estimates that the country needs EUR 59.2 million private and international relief to address health, social and economical issues of CoVID-19.[176]

On the same date, the Minister President, Mark Rutte, of the Netherlands had announced that the country would not go into complete lockdown. Instead the situation would be controlled as much as possible by delaying the spread of the virus, relying on measures taken earlier by the government, such as social distancing and prohibiting gatherings of 100 people and over.[183] It is expected the coronavirus will keep spreading and a large part of the population will become infected. Instead of opting to lockdown the Netherlands for the time required, which would have a lot of (negative) consequences while the benefits remain uncertain and would have to stay in place, it will be attempted to build herd immunity in a controlled manner. Depending on how the virus behaves, the government will decide if additional measures are required.[183][184]

Further measures were introduced on 23 March. All events will be banned until 1 June. Gatherings of more than three people, except for families, are prohibited. City mayors received greater authorisation to enforce the rules. Fines will be issued to those not complying with the new rules.[185]

Criticism of response to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic

Although by 7 March some European politicians such as France's Marine Le Pen had called for Europe's internal borders to be temporarily closed,[287] the European Union by 13 March continued to reject the idea of suspending the Schengen free travel area and introducing border controls with Italy.[288][289][290][291] The deputy leader of the Swiss Ticino League, Lorenzo Quadri, by 29 February had criticised the decision: "It is alarming that the dogma of wide-open borders is considered a priority."[292] United States President Donald Trump said by 12 March the European Union had "failed to take the same precautions and restrict travel from China and other hot spots" as the US had implemented.[293]

By 9 March Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš stated that "European countries cannot ban the entry of Italian citizens within the Schengen area. The only possible way is to have the Italian prime minister call on his fellow citizens to refrain from traveling to other countries of the European Union."[294]

After Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Denmark announced complete closure of their national borders, the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said by 12 March that "Certain controls may be justified, but general travel bans are not seen as being the most effective by the World Health Organization. Moreover, they have a strong social and economic impact, they disrupt people’s lives and business across the borders."[295] European Union leaders condemned the US decision to restrict travel from Europe to the United States. European Council President Charles Michel and Ursula von der Leyen said in a joint statement: "The European Union disapproves of the fact that the US decision to impose a travel ban was taken unilaterally and without consultation."[296] Ursula von der Leyen admitted by 17 March that "all of us who are not experts initially underestimated the coronavirus."[297]

The Italian government has criticised EU's lack of solidarity with Italy.[298][299][300][301] Politico reported on 7 March that "EU countries have so far refused Italy's plea for help fighting coronavirus, as national capitals worry that they may need to stockpile face masks and other medical gear to help their own citizens, officials and diplomats said."[302] Maurizio Massari, Italy's ambassador to the EU, said that "Only China responded bilaterally. Certainly, this is not a good sign of European solidarity."[303] Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said that "European solidarity does not exist. That was a fairy tale."[303]

The planned NATODefender 2020” military exercise in Germany, Poland, and the Baltic states,[304] the largest NATO war manoeuvres since the end of the Cold War, were to be held on a reduced scale because of the coronavirus pandemic.[305] The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament's general secretary Kate Hudson critisiced the Defender 2020 exercise: "In the current public-health crisis, it jeopardises the lives not only of the troops from the US and the many European countries participating but the inhabitants of the countries in which they are operating."[306]
