  • Czech Republic - the whole country is a designated risk zone, with the exception of the Ústecký and Moravskloslezský regions.
  • Hungary - Györ-Moson-Sopron region

Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Cuba, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Kitts und Nevis, the Seychelles and Sri Lanka have been removed from the list of risk areas. The full list can be found here.
