RIVM reports 10,492 positive tests

Just like on Saturday, RIVM reports more than ten thousand positive corona tests on Wednesday.

This concerns 10,492 new cases.

That is well above the average over the last seven days (8,395).

More tests have been taken since the end of June, because the outgoing cabinet announced that with a negative test, the 1.5 meters could be released in many places.

Due to the significant increase in recent times, the government has now reversed this.

Number of corona patients in hospital rises slightly

There are currently 74 corona patients in Dutch intensive care units.

That is one patient less than Tuesday, reports the National Coordination Center for Patients Spreading (LCPS).

The number of corona patients in the nursing wards has increased compared to Tuesday.

Nursing units are currently treating 138 people with COVID-19, 9 more than Tuesday.

A total of 212 corona patients are now in Dutch hospitals, 8 more than on Tuesday.

The number of corona patients in hospital has been fluctuating around 200 for a week.

The number of hospital admissions has increased.

In the past 24 hours, 21 people have been admitted to an intensive care or nursing unit.

That is the largest number since June 26, almost three weeks ago.

RIVM reports one new death

The number of recorded corona-related deaths remains extremely low.

RIVM received one report of this in the past 24 hours.

This patient did not necessarily die within the past 24 hours;

there may be a delay between the date of death and the notification date.

So far, more than 17,000 inhabitants of the Netherlands have died from the consequences of the corona virus.

The infographic below shows the number of infections and the number of deaths per age group.

Blue stands for infections and red for deaths.

More than 18 million shots taken

The number of corona shots in the Netherlands has risen above 18 million until Tuesday.

On Monday, the 18 millionth shot was taken in the Netherlands, reported caretaker minister Hugo de Jonge (Public Health).

There are currently 18.1 million shots indicated on the corona dashboard.

At the current vaccination rate, an average of 235 people receive a corona jab every minute.

That is an average of about 169,000 doses per day.

Since 13 July, RIVM has only provided data on the number of injections on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

This number is therefore only updated on these days on the corona dashboard of the central government.
