Holidays and Covid-19: Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece … What is the health situation in your summer destination?

If you want to leave this summer, be careful, in some countries the health situation is deteriorating and restrictions are imposed. Here’s what you need to know, on Monday, July 11, about the evolution of Covid-19 in your favorite destinations.

The Covid-19 epidemic has started again in France. While many travelers have already packed their bags and headed to their favorite destinations, the pandemic isn’t there either! Whether in Greece, Spain, Portugal or even Morocco, some restrictions are still in place while the health situation fluctuates significantly. We are evaluating.


During the past seven days, Spain scored an average 22204 new cases per day, unrelated to 144,000 at the beginning of the year. We can say that the country is doing well compared to France and its 127,000 daily cases over the past seven days. On the other hand, 88 deaths were recorded, which is slightly more than in France. There, mask-wearing is mandatory for “anyone over the age of 6 in health institutions, including pharmacies and elderly residences,” as the French embassy in Spain notes. Do not forget that it is also safe on public transport!


Like France, Covid cases are exploding in Italy. The new wave was not spared from the country that recorded 95,804 new cases Daily newspapers for the last 7 days. The balance sheet has been steadily increasing since the beginning of June. Franco Locatelli, head of Italy’s Supreme Health Council, described the spread of new strains of Covid-19 as “clear and uniform”. For this reason, wearing an FFP2 mask is mandatory in transportation (including air transportation), theatres, concert halls, cinemas, entertainment and music venues, as well as in sporting events and competitions held indoors.


By June, cases of Covid-19 were down in Portugal. However, the month of July is less Clement and already scores almost 10126 cases daily for the past week. A similar number, given the population, to that of neighboring countries. The mask has not been required indoors since mid-June, but it remains mandatory on public transport, in hospitals or nursing homes.

The Kingdom of Morocco

In Morocco, as in other countries, the Covid-19 epidemic has started anew. Since mid-June, cases have continued to increase but are still lower than in some European countries. During the last 7 days 2380 new cases Daily newspapers were registered. But that number is likely to rise rapidly in the coming weeks. So the country was also affected by the seventh wave and decided to extend the state of health emergency until July 31. As a result, mask-wearing is mandatory throughout the country without exception.


Greece is witnessing a real revival of the epidemic in recent days. Over a week, the average is 17,615 new cases Daily And the development continues. According to some experts, the peak is expected at best in mid-July. So the curves should continue to grow over the coming days. It is no longer mandatory to wear a mask indoors. However, they are found in health institutions, EHPADs and mass urban public transport.

United kingdom

As in all the other countries mentioned above, in the UK, pollution is increasing again. Again, this should go on for a while because the seventh wave is not over yet. Over the past seven days, the country recorded an average 21,240 new cases Daily newspapers. However, like France, there are no health restrictions in place in the country.

United State

The numbers in the United States are impressive, but the population is also much larger. Since the beginning of April, the epidemic is on the rise again, and during the past seven days, 113,726 new cases Daily newspapers were registered. Although this is likely to increase significantly in the coming weeks, we are still a long way from January, when the country had an average of nearly 800,000 new cases per day. Fewer health restrictions. Since June 12, it is no longer necessary to submit a negative test less than 24 hours before boarding in the United States: a full vaccination schedule is now sufficient.
