Coronavirus (COVID-19) tests performed in Europe as of August 27, 2020, by country

As of August 27, 2020, Russia had conducted the highest number of coronavirus (COVID-19) tests in Europe at approximately 33 million. The considerable amount of tests for coronavirus carried out in Russia has been referred to as a contributing factor to the country having the highest amount of confirmed cases in Europe. At the latest available data, the United Kingdom had conducted around 16.3 million coronavirus tests. In Germany, over 11.2 million coronavirus tests have been performed, and Germany has received praise for its testing program alongside a relatively low coronavirus mortality rate in comparison to other countries. Many European countries have ramped up their 'test and trace' programs recently in an effort to limit the spread and damage of the coronavirus pandemic.
