Get a daily notification of the corona update

RIVM has registered 3,914 positive corona tests between Sunday and Monday morning.

That's the smallest number in nearly three weeks, and obviously fewer than the average over the past seven days (5,735).

According to outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte, the number of infections has now reached a 'plateau'.

RIVM's expectation - that the number of cases would fall in the course of last week - seems to have come true.

On previous days, four to six thousand positive tests were invariably reported.

New sharp increase in hospitals, but stabilization next week

Dutch hospitals are currently treating 577 corona patients.

That is 44 more than on Sunday, the National Coordination Center for Patient Distribution (LCPS) reported on Monday.

According to outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte, the level will be reached next week that the admissions will not increase any further.

The number of COVID-19 patients on ICUs increased by 6 patients to 140, the largest number in almost a month.

On Sunday, there were still 134 corona patients on the ICs.

"It is hard work there, but manageable," Rutte said on Monday afternoon during a press moment about the situation in hospitals.

"It remains exciting."

The number of corona patients in hospitals has been increasing day by day for almost two weeks now.

Hospitals also took this into account, because the number of corona infections has risen sharply in recent weeks.

RIVM reports one new death

RIVM received one report about a corona-related death in the past 24 hours.

This does not necessarily mean that this patient has died from the effects of the virus in the past 24 hours.

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

So far, almost eighteen thousand 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.

More than 20 million shots

The number of corona shots in the Netherlands has risen to more than 20 million.

The milestone was officially passed on Monday, one day later than expected.

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.

The number of 19.6 million is still mentioned there.

At the current vaccination rate, an average of 194 people receive a corona jab every minute.

That is an average of about 140,000 doses per day.
