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 * 100]
[Average positive rate past 7 days * 50] If no positive rate is available, the average of 5% is used.
[Tendency in % (Cases past week compared to week before) * 2]

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).
Feel free to contact my if you have a suggestion: d.berger@dontsniff.co.uk
