Number of coronavirus infections above average again: 4720 new cases

Between Saturday morning and Sunday morning, 4720 positive corona-virus animals were recorded. These are more than the average of the past week, which is 3935, according to figures from the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM).

On Saturday, the health institute recorded 4578 new cases (corrected from 4604) over a day, even above the average.

The number of reported deaths from Covid-19 increased by 17 last 24 hours, which does not mean that all those people died in a 24-hour period. Deaths are sometimes passed only after a while. On Saturday 62 deaths were recorded, Friday 50 and Thursday 74.

Amsterdam most infections

in Amsterdam had the highest number of new corona infections: 238. 122 inhabitants tested positive in Rotterdam, 106 in The Hague. 79.

The number of vaccinations in the Netherlands is approaching 1 million. This number is also approximate, because for long-term care institutions and general practitioners it is based on the number of doses of vaccine delivered by the RIVM.

Slight decrease in coronapatics hospitals

The number of coronapatics in the Dutch hospitals, on the other hand, decreased slightly last 24 hours. According to the National Coordination Centre Patient Spreading (LCPS), 1849 people with Covid-19 are admitted, nine less than Saturday. Of these patients, 534 are so sick that they are in intensive care (ic). There are 12 more than a day before.

In the ICs, the number of coronapatics has been fluctuating between 500 and 550 for about two weeks.

Hospitals recorded 157 new patients last 24 hours, 19 less than on Saturday. Of them, 34 were hospitalized in intensive care, 14 more than Saturday.

According to the LCPS, the COVID hospital occupation remained stable compared to a week ago. However, there is a slight increase in the average number of daily recordings. It is too early to refer to this development as a breach of trend compared to previous weeks or as a result of the further emergence of the British Covid variant, said the LCPS.

To spread the number of admissions across the country, the LCPS has moved 12 patients over the last 24 hours, of which 5 are on the IC.
