An upward trend in the number of infections has been visible in the past week. The number of infections doubled last week compared to a week earlier, RIVM reported. In a week, an infection was diagnosed in 987 people. The increase may be partly explained by a larger number of tests. The number of people who get tested last week was about 50 percent higher than the week before. Rotterdam-Rijnmond was the region with the largest number of new infections: 64. Rotterdam also had the most infections in recent days.

Intensive care
The number of Covid patients who stay in intensive care is 16. That is 2 patients less than Saturday. In addition, there are 568 non-Covid patients on the ICs, 28 fewer than the previous day. The number of Covid recordings outside the IC is 67, 24 fewer than yesterday. This is evident from the data from the National Coordination Center for Patient Distribution (LCPS). Yesterday, the number of Covid admissions outside the intensive care unit rose by 17. According to a spokesman for the LCPS, the “broader trend” is “stable” despite the sharp fluctuations yesterday and today. “Sometimes data is corrected by hospitals and then it seems to be a peak or a sharp drop. But the decline continues, and it sometimes bumps. ” For example, the figures from yesterday and today played a role in which one hospital first reported nine suspicious cases, which were removed from the list a day later. The numbers of the national coordination center sometimes deviate from the dashboard of the national government, but according to the spokesman, the LCPS figures are current: “We ask the hospitals live.”
