Data compiled by Bloomberg over the past week indicates that Eastern Europe is now facing the brunt of the Covid-19 epidemic, despite having fewer cases than its western counterpart.

Currently, the region is home to nine countries in the top ten list of deaths per capita.

Moreover, Hungary, which has had a particularly rapid vaccine rollout, is becoming a global hotspot.

The news comes as the government of Hungary continues talks about reopening the country.
