The study also found several countries which should be on the red enrol come the deadline, including France, Turkey, Holland, Croatia, Sweden, Belgium and Luxembourg.
And rubbernecker hotspots like Spain, Greece, Italy and Cyprus are classed as amber mountains on the report, due to high coronavirus rates.
However, economic and political middlemen could see those riskier countries downgraded.
