The European Union has announced a "traffic light" system in the hope of restarting international travel.

A colour-coded map on the Re-Open Europa website shows the coronavirus risk levels across regions in Europe, based on data from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

Regions are classified as green, orange, red or grey, depending on the 14-day cumulative incidence rate (the number of newly identified cases per 100,000 people), testing rate, and test positivity rates.
