In February 2021, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) started collecting surveillance data on cases and fatal cases of COVID-19 among people who live in long-term care facilities in European Union or European Economic Area (EU/EEA) countries. For this, ECDC developed, with of COVID-19 EU/EEA countries, a surveillance protocol for retrospective or prospective reporting of weekly aggregate national data.
This, together with resources to support prevention and control of COVID-19 in long-term care facilities, is available in this webpage: https://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/all-topics-z/coronavirus/threats-and-outbreaks/covid-19/prevention-and-control/LTCF
In February, ECDC also published a webpage that contains surveillance data on infections and deaths among people living in long-term care facilities for 18 EU/EEA countries, up to the 8th of February 2021. It also contains a table summarising the national surveillance systems of those 18 countries. It is available on this webpage: https://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/all-topics-z/coronavirus/threats-and-outbreaks/covid-19/prevention-and-control/LTCF-data
