Spain and Malta are among six European countries currently recording a seven-day rate of over 50 new cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 people.

The others are in south-east Europe: Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kosovo, Moldova and Montenegro.

In Spain the rate continues to grow, from 52.0 cases per 100,000 people in the seven days to August 6, to 58.5 in the seven days to August 13.

The rate here is now roughly half the level it was at the peak of the outbreak, when nearly 120 new cases per 100,000 people per week were being recorded in late March.

In France the seven-day rate currently stands at 18.9, up from 13.2, while in the Netherlands the rate has jumped from 16.0 to 24.3.

The figures have been calculated by the PA news agency based on the latest data published by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

Not all countries have reported data up to August 14, so the seven days to August 13 have been used to calculate a comparable list of rates.
