RIVM reports 3,826 new positive corona tests on Monday.

That is a lot less than the average of the past seven days (4,545).

Last week, about four to five thousand positive tests were reported almost every day.

More than 5,000 positive tests were reported twice in the past seven days, the largest in more than a month.

Because the daily figures can fluctuate, NU.nl looks at the weekly average.

RIVM also repeatedly emphasized that these figures provide a better picture.

On Tuesdays, the institute provides a weekly overview with an explanation of the figures.

The RIVM also reports 22 corona-related deaths.

Not all of these patients have died in the past 24 hours, because there may be a delay between the date of death and the reporting date.

Worldwide, 2.5 million people have died from the effects of the corona virus.
