RIVM worried about Corona in the fall: ‘The numbers do not fall’

Van Dijel briefed Parliament again this morning on developments surrounding the Corona crisis in the Netherlands. “The seasonal impact on the breeding number is 10 to 15 percent. That’s going to turn against us,” said Van Dessel, who is also the team leader for Outbreak’s management.

The astronomical fall begins on September 22. A few days ago, the government wants More relaxation in aura measures. This is possible, says Van Diesel. “In the near future, a group will build immunity and hopefully other people will continue to be vaccinated. This helps control and control the virus.”

Outbreaks among the unvaccinated

According to the head of the National Institute of HIV (RIVM), there are actually two outbreaks occurring in the Netherlands: one among vaccinated people and one among people who have not been vaccinated. “The main spread is among the non-fortified group. Some of that goes to the fortified group.”

Of the people now admitted to hospital due to complaints of corona, nearly three-quarters of people have not been vaccinated or have not yet been fully vaccinated. About 15 percent of admitted corona patients are fully vaccinated. In some cases, the vaccine does not work well due to problems with the immune system.

RIVM expects that approximately 16,000 to 22,000 coronavirus patients will remain in hospital in the coming period, 2,200 to 3,400 of whom will be in intensive care. According to Van Dissel, these would be mainly unvaccinated people. “But will it come in a month or will it be over two years? We can’t predict that, the model is too complicated.”

Do a self test

Van Dissel calls for people to use self-tests. If the self-test is positive, this is confirmed in nine out of ten cases in the GGD test line. Meanwhile, half of all new cases are of people who first took a self-test, saw they were positive and then went to a testing site to be sure.
