Europe Covid Ranking

Don't take this too serious. It's the internet.

Rank and Score are compared to 7 days ago. The lower the better.

Graphs show development in the past 2 months.

It's very critical to compare data between countries, as they use different counting methods, different testing rules etc. etc.
Also, this pandemic is regional, there is a huge size difference between the countries.
Nonetheless I decided to create a ranking system because I realized that I didn't notice when the situation was changing in other countries.
So with the help of this list I hope it's easier to see what's currently going on in Europe.

Score
Following numbers are summed up to calculate the score:
[Cases per 100k/past 14 days]
[Cases per 100k/past 7 days]
[Deaths per 100k/past 14 days * 20]
[Average positive rate past 7 days] * [Cases per 100k/past 14 days] /50 (If no positive rate is available, the value of 5% is used.)
[Tendency in % (Cases past week compared to week before)] * [Cases per 100k/past 14 days] /100

Why this formula? Nothing scientific, I just tried to make a balanced score, taking into account the number of cases, trend in cases, death rates and if there are enough tests performed (by using positive rate).
