View today’s corona figures here

Every day NU.nl provides an overview of the most recent figures on the development of the corona virus in the Netherlands. These are the figures that are now available (Saturday, April 3), brought together in six graphs.

In the past 24 hours, 7,682 new positive corona tests have been reported. That is more than the daily average of the past seven days (7,225). Last Saturday, 8,868 positive tests were reported.

Since the outbreak began, nearly 1.3 million people in the Netherlands have been tested positive. More than 16,600 people are certain to have died from the effects of the corona virus.

The table below shows the average of the past seven days, as well as the number of reported infections per day.

Almost 30 ic recordings have been registered

The number of corona patients in intensive care units (ICs) has increased by 29 since Friday to 734. The National Coordination Center for Patient Distribution (LCPS) reports this. On Friday, the number on the ic’s was 705, which was the first time since January 11 that this number exceeded 700.

The total number of corona patients in hospital also increased compared to Friday. Hospitals are currently treating 2,348 people with COVID-19. That is fourteen more than Friday.

The LCPS expects hospital occupancy to increase in the coming weeks. In the past 24 hours, 297 corona patients were admitted to hospitals. On Friday it involved 324 new patients, the largest number since December 24.

Different clusters of infections in the country

The corona virus has spread throughout the Netherlands. Especially in Drenthe and North Limburg, the number of infections per 100,000 inhabitants is currently relatively high.

The numbers fluctuate on a daily basis. The data per municipality will appear when you click on a municipality in the map below:

Most deaths in age category 85 to 89 years

It is known that the coronavirus affects the elderly relatively heavily. Nearly 66 percent of the corona patients who died were older than eighty. 81 percent were 75 years or older.

Most corona patients who died (23.4 percent) were between 85 and 89 years old. According to the RIVM, one baby has died of COVID-19 so far. The child also suffered from other underlying medical conditions.

The infographic below shows the number of infections and the number of deaths per age group. Blue stands for infections and red for deaths.

More men than women died from COVID-19

RIVM receives more reports about men who died of COVID-19 than about female corona patients who died. Since February 27, 8,946 men have died from the effects of the virus, compared to 7,563 women.

In contrast, women tested positive for the virus more often than men. The RIVM reports 670,478 positive tests among women, while 594,414 men received a positive test result in the same time frame.

This difference may be partly due to the overrepresentation of women in care professions. At the start of the corona crisis, not everyone could be tested due to the limited testing capacity and it was mainly the health care personnel that were tested.

A vaccine is administered every 0.9 seconds

More than 2.7 million injections have been taken in the Netherlands since the start of the vaccination campaign. All vaccines used so far consist of two doses. Nearly 1.7 million people have now received a first dose of a corona vaccine. About 700,000 people have also had a second injection.

With the current vaccination rate, you get average every second someone a shot, data from the corona dashboard shows. That is more than 52,000 per day.
