18 patients deceased, 22 new patients, a total of 42,627 confirmed cases

Hospital admissions for 22 patients due to COVID-19 were reported today (current or previous). 18 deaths were reported. Not all of the reported hospital admissions or deaths occurred within the last 24 hours. Some patients are reported later. For this reason, the figures are often supplemented with data from days in the past.

There is an increase in the number of confirmed COVID-19 patients in the city of Sneek. This is due to the cluster of COVID-19 patients in an asylum seekers center in Sneek, which GGD Fryslan reported earlier this week.

42,627 confirmed COVID-19 patients have been reported to RIVM National Institute for Public Health and the Environment   so far. The figures are in line with the impression that the measures are working. Since not all COVID-19 patients are tested, the actual numbers in the Netherlands are higher than the numbers stated here.
