The old record was set last Thursday, with about 23,600 new cases in a single day.
It’s the ninth day in a row with more than 20,000 positive tests. In the past seven days, RIVM has recorded 156,921 cases. This is also a record. On average, it drops to 22,417 confirmed infections per day. This average is rising for the 55th day in a row.
The increase in the number of positive tests is slightly slower. The weekly total for the past seven days, 156,921 positive tests, is 32.4 percent higher than the previous week. This is the lowest “growth number” since October 9. This could be a temporary regression, and it could also be because the GGDs are nearing their maximum capacity and unable to test as many more people than they actually do, but it could also mean that growth is beginning to stabilize.
As usual, Amsterdam has had the most positive tests. The virus was found in 735 residents of the capital. The Hague recorded 570 new cases, Rotterdam 562 and Utrecht 511. It is followed by Breda (345), Tilburg (329) and Eindhoven (319).
In the province of Utrecht, 2,251 people tested positive, which is also a record. Never before has a security area seen so many new cases in a single day. Last Wednesday, Rotterdam-Regenmond reported 2,156 positive tests.
Fifty patients died
RIVM has received fifty reports in the past 24 hours that a Corona patient has died as a result of infection. Among them are four people from Maastricht. Just because they have been reported dead now doesn’t mean they died in the last day. Sometimes the notification may not arrive until after a while.
In the past seven days, the institute has recorded 271 deaths, an average of 39 deaths per day. This is the highest level since March 8.
Corona patients in hospitals decreased slightly
For the first time in nearly two weeks, the number of corona patients in Dutch hospitals decreased slightly on Wednesday. There are now 2,535 patients infected with Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. That’s one-fifth less than Tuesday, according to figures from the National Coordination Center for Patient Publication (LCPS).
The number of Corona patients in nursing wards decreased by 22 until 2030. There are now 505 people in intensive care units with Corona, an increase of 17 from the previous day. At the end of May, more than 500 Covid patients were last admitted to intensive care units.
During the past 24 hours, 272 new patients from Corona were brought to the nursing wards. 47 people were accepted into the integrated circuits.
