Since yesterday, 545 people have tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). This brings the total number of confirmed cases in the Netherlands to 4749. Among them are 1230 people who are or have been admitted to hospital.

Since the last update, 34 patients have died from COVID-19. The number of COVID-19 fatalities in the Netherlands is now 213. The age of the deceased is between 55 and 97 years; the average age at the time of death is 82 years.

Most of the positively tested people live in the province of Noord- Brabant, namely 1558 people. Followed by Zuid- Holland (647) and Noord-Holland (600).

The actual number of infections with COVID-19 is higher than the number of reports in this update. This is because not everyone suspected of a COVID-19 infection is tested. It regards mainly patients who are so sick that they are admitted to hospital and healthcare providers.
