Germany is reporting a growing number of coronavirus cases but how does the situation compare with its neighbouring countries and indeed the rest of Europe?

This interactive map shows the outlook across Europe.

As the map shows, Italy is by far the hardest hit among European countries.

!function(){"use strict";window.addEventListener("message",function(a){if(void 0!==a.data["datawrapper-height"])for(var e in a.data["datawrapper-height"]){var t=document.getElementById("datawrapper-chart-"+e)||document.querySelector("iframe[src*='"+e+"']");t&&(t.style.height=a.data["datawrapper-height"][e]+"px")}})}();
Germany has a rising number of infections with most being reported in the state of Nordrhein-Westphalen.
 

But Italy is easily the hardest-hit country in Europe.

In Italy itself, some regions have reported far more cases than others with the north of the country, in particular the regions of Lombardy, Emilia Romagna and Veneto, having hundreds of confirmed infections.

!function(){"use strict";window.addEventListener("message",function(a){if(void 0!==a.data["datawrapper-height"])for(var e in a.data["datawrapper-height"]){var t=document.getElementById("datawrapper-chart-"+e)||document.querySelector("iframe[src*='"+e+"']");t&&(t.style.height=a.data["datawrapper-height"][e]+"px")}})}();

Germany's neighbour France has also reported an increasing number of cases of coronavirus and a small number of deaths. This map shows the latest for regions around France.

 
The map below shows the latest around Switzerland with the canton of Ticino reporting the most cases.

Spain has also reported a growing number of coronavirus cases across the country with the province of Madrid the most affected.

!function(){"use strict";window.addEventListener("message",function(a){if(void 0!==a.data["datawrapper-height"])for(var e in a.data["datawrapper-height"]){var t=document.getElementById("datawrapper-chart-"+e)||document.querySelector("iframe[src*='"+e+"']");t&&(t.style.height=a.data["datawrapper-height"][e]+"px")}})}();
 
The focal point of the outbreak in Sweden is the Stockholm area as the map below shows.
