Please note that this file is no longer being updated. Last update: 11 February 2021.
CWSS’s decision to discontinue a regularly update as destinations and government bodies issue new information is based on the fact that updates are frequently subject to retrospective corrections, delays in reporting and/or clustered reporting of information for several days.
Hence, all regular updates have been discontinued from 11 February.
