COVID-19 profile

SARS-CoV-2 is an extremely aggressive virus. Without government countermeasures in place, growth in infection rates can become exponential. This has already become reality in most affected European countries. Several official sources offer regular updates on the spread of the virus worldwide, sharing figures by country and region.

Health authorities additionally provide important background information on the virus as well as guidelines on protection measures and other practical advice.

We have compiled the most important documents and links below.
