In the past 24 hours, 4,924 positive corona tests have been reported to the RIVM.
That is less than the average of the past seven days (5,421).
It is the first time in four days that fewer positive tests than the moving average have been reported.
NU.nl looks at the average of the past seven days, because this gives a better picture than the fluctuating daily figures.
The Netherlands now has nearly a million infections with the corona virus.
Eighteen countries worldwide have so far crossed that border.
On Sunday, the counter in the Netherlands is about 945,000 positive tests.
The RIVM reports thirty corona-related deaths.
This does not necessarily mean that these persons have all died in the past 24 hours.
There may be some delay between the date of death and the reporting date.

Curfew since Saturday
A curfew has been in effect since Saturday.
In any case, residents must stay in every evening from 9 p.m. until February 10 and may leave their home from 4:30 a.m. the next morning.
The curfew should stop the advance of the British coronavirus variant in the Netherlands.
Health experts from the RIVM suspect that currently one in ten infected Dutch people has contracted the mutated, more contagious virus.
