the National Coordination Centre for Patient Distribution (LCPS) expects the number of patients admitted to continue to decline in the coming period, but slower than previously thought.

New infections

The number of newly registered coronavirus cases is close to the average of last week, when 6166 positive tests were reported to RIVM in a typical 24 hour time.

On Thursday, the RIVM reported more than 6500 new cases and on Wednesday more than 6100.

In the last seven days, 43,161 people were tested positive, compared with almost 54,000 the week before. A week earlier, more than 61,000 notifications came in and the week for almost 80,000.

The number of deaths increased by 96 last 24 hours, against 88 on Thursday. That doesnt mean that all those people died in a 24-hour period. When a coronapatient dies, this is sometimes passed after a while.
