The proportion of the population “staying put” in the period between December 20 and January 10 in 2021 was lower than in the same period one year earlier. In particular, it should be noted that on 25 December 2021 and 1 January 2022 the proportion of the population "staying put" was lower than the one observed on 25 December 2020 and 1 January 2021.
The differences in mobility levels between 2021 and 2020 in the holiday season becomes even more evident when the indicator on the proportion of the population “staying put” is contextualised against the 14-day cumulative incidence rate of new COVID-19 cases. However, contextualising the proportion of the population “staying put” in relation to the registered COVID-19 deaths instead suggests higher levels of mobility in the 2020 holiday season than in 2021.
