Meanwhile, Germany recorded a case rate of just 106.80, which is well over five times lower than the UK’s.
Spain has recorded an even lower rate of just 32.91, a staggering 18 times lower than the UK.
Italy has also seen low case rates of just 41.24 for every one million people.
Worryingly it’s not just Europe that the UK is lagging behind, the US and India are among the many countries currently recording far lower case rates than the UK.
The latest data shows case rates in the US were more than 50 percent lower than the UK’s, as their case rates in the last seven days to October 16 stood at 256.79.
