The National Committee for Emergency Situations updates approved by decision 28 of 14 May 2021 the change of classification of states and no longer takes into account the ECDC epidemiological index per 100 inhabitants, but the cumulative incidence index at 000 days, thus being 14 categories.

Art.2 - (1) The classification of countries / territories of epidemiological risk, according to the cumulative incidence rate at 14 days, is performed in 3 categories as follows:

  1. Green area - where the cumulative incidence rate of new cases of illness in the last 14 days per 1.000 inhabitants is less than or equal to 1,5;
  2. Yellow Zone - where the cumulative incidence rate of new cases of illness in the last 14 days per 1.000 inhabitants is between 1,5 and 3 per 1.000 inhabitants;
  3. The Red Zone - where the cumulative incidence rate of new cases of illness in the last 14 days in relation to 1.000 inhabitants is greater than or equal to 3 per 1000 inhabitants.
  • The classification from the yellow or green zone to the red zone, as well as the classification from the green zone to the yellow zone, enters into force within 24 hours from the approval of the List of countries / territories of epidemiological risk by decision of the National Committee for Emergency Situations.
  • The classification from the red zone to the green or yellow zone, as well as the classification from the yellow zone to the green zone, enters into force on the date of approval of the List of countries / territories of epidemiological risk by decision of the National Committee for Emergency Situations.

According to this list, countries such as Ireland, Norway, Slovakia, Sri Lanka, Jordan, Cuba and many others have been saved, which would normally have been on the yellow list if the old classification had been retained. Below you have the new classification of countries.
