Fewer than 500 corona patients in hospitals for the first time in two months

With 491 patients in hospital because of the corona virus, the number of corona patients admitted has fallen below five hundred for the first time since July 23.

This is evident from figures from the National Coordination Center for Patient Distribution (LCPS).

In the last 2.5 weeks, the number of admitted patients decreased by almost two hundred.

The number of corona patients in intensive care fell by 8 to 176 last day, the smallest number since July 28.

14 beds became available in the nursing wards.

There are now 316 corona patients, the smallest number since July 20.

The occupation in hospitals is falling because fewer and fewer corona patients are being admitted.

In the past 24 hours, 52 people had such serious corona complaints that they ended up in hospital.

In the past seven days, the LCPS recorded an average of about 47 new admissions, the lowest level since July 19.

Three deaths reported

RIVM also reports that three deaths have been registered in the past 24 hours.

The fact that these deaths were reported in the past 24 hours does not mean that these individuals actually died in the past 24 hours.

The registration can also take a while without interference.

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

The infographic below shows the number of positive tests and the number of deaths by age group.

Nearly 83 percent of Dutch adults have now been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

The number of vaccinations is updated on the corona dashboard every Tuesday and Thursday.
