The source of infection is not known to all people who have tested positive. For example, there are many people who do not know where and how they contracted the virus. In one in three people who tested positive last week, an ‘infection mode’ has been established.
Of the new cases whose source is known, nearly 12 percent were infected during a trip or vacation. Last week it was 10 percent, the week before it was 8 percent and a week ago it was 5 percent. Of all the people who have tested positive for the virus since the beginning of June, the holiday has been the source of 6.5 percent of cases.
Nearly 19 percent of infected vacationers went to Greece in the past two weeks, which means there is a possibility that they may have contracted the virus there. Last week it was almost a quarter. The proportion of pioneers in Spain decreased from 16.8% to 15.5% and France from 15.6% to 13.9%. The countries that rose mainly were Croatia (from 5.6 to 8 percent), Italy (from 5.7 to 7.6 percent) and Turkey (from 2.6 to 5.6 percent). Hungary was the holiday destination with 3.1 percent of people who tested positive, compared to 0.8 percent the previous week. Morocco rose from 2.2 percent to 4.6 percent.
The home situation remains the most important place where people are infected. This led to nearly 55 per cent of infections last week as the source is known. Visiting each other relatively often leads to infection.
