Madeira was today placed in the high risk category for covid-19 on the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC) map, which supports travel decisions in the European Union (EU), going from orange to red.

After having been in the green category in mid-October (relating to the best epidemiological situation on the ECDC map) and two weeks ago having dropped back to orange, Madeira is now seeing its ranking worsened again, going into red, which means high risk.
