LIVE Number of new coronavirus cases slightly lower than last week

The number of coronavirus infections is growing considerably in the United States and Europe. Worldwide, additional corona measures are taken such as full and local lockdowns, evening bells and contact bubbles. Follow the latest coronan news in this live blog.

The number of new coronavirus cases continues to decline, but the decline is not as fast as last week. Over the last seven days, 35,000 to 40,000 positive tests have been recorded. Last week, 43,621 positive corona-virus reports came in, and 64,087 reports the week before.

The exact figure comes Tuesday from the National Institute for Public Health and Environment (RIVM). In the six days since the last update, the institute recorded over 33,000 positive tests and 393 deaths.

The RIVM will also report on Tuesday how many deaths and hospitalizations have been recorded in the past week. Last week, the RIVM reported 565 deaths, 1520 admissions in the nursing departments at hospitals and 275 in the intensive cares.

Furthermore, the RIVM reports whether the so-called reproduction number has changed. That figure indicates how fast the virus is spreading. Last week, the number dropped below 1 for the first time in months, which means that the outbreak can slowly go out.
